This set of videos aim to raise awareness of cancer among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men.

The men share their stories of the experience of being diagnosed with cancer, the treatment and survival. They express the importance of family and support. Key messages include:

  • importance of screening
  • reducing smoking and alcohol
  • having a positive attitude
  • communicating with your doctor about any concerns you have.
