The Hunter Prostate Cancer Alliance (HPCA) was formed in response to an abnormally high number of men dying of prostate cancer in Newcastle, the Hunter and New England regions (which was up to 40% higher than Metropolitan Sydney in 2007). The reason for these statistics is that there was not enough awareness of the disease and as a result men were not getting tested and treatable cancers were not being discovered. These statistics also highlighted the need for an information and support service for men diagnosed with the disease to help them make better informed choices about their treatment and recovery options.
