WITH its support for raising awareness on prostate cancer, the Bank South Pacific hopes to encourage men to get tested.

BSP country manager Kevin McCarthy said: "Men are facing a health crisis that still isn't being spoken about enough.

"Prostate cancer is curable if detected early and all men need to know this," he said.

A statement from the bank said the BSP group will run a campaign this month in support of men's health, in particular raising awareness on prostate cancer.

Mr McCarthy said funds raised during the month would be handed over to the Suva Golden Oldies to raise awareness on the disease.

According to the statement the bank was fielding a team to participate in the annual Balls & Beards tournament, an annual event organised by the Suva Golden Oldies to raise awareness on the disease.

It said funds would be raised by staff who would sponsor men who had volunteered to be Mo Bros to grow their moustaches or beards for the month. This is the second year for BSP to take part in this initiative. Staff will also be given time off work to have PSA tests.
