Staff pitch pants for prostate awareness By GILL ALCOCK Staff at Placemakers Waiheke are doing their bit in support of Blue Sept- ember which is calling for all New Zea- land men to face up to prostate cancer. What breast cancer is to women, prostate cancer is to men. It is the most common cancer in New Zealand men, with one in 10 getting it. About 3000 new cases are diagnosed every year and more than 550 die of the dis- ease. Radio personality and Blue Sept- ember ambassador Mike Puru says it s time the country started doing some- thing to change these figures. The more we have men talking about it and demystifying it, then the less scary it is. While there is no way of preventing prostate cancer, the disease is very treatable if caught early enough. Many men die simply because they didn t go to the doctor and get checked out. Prostate Cancer Foundation chief executive officer Keith Beck says early detection means men with prostate cancer have a chance to be treated before the cancer is incurable. Prostate cancer can only be cured when it s contained within the pros- tate, once out of the prostate the only treatment is palliative which slows it down but doesn t cure it. During Blue September ambassad- ors like Mike Puru, Buck Shelford and Stu Wilson will be spreading the simple message of Get Blue! Face up to Prostate Cancer! At Placemakers Waiheke, staff will be selling blue paintbrushes, wrist- bands and fake tattoos along with the check underpants with the proceeds donated to prostate cancer. Outside the store on Ostend Rd a sausage sizzle will be run every Friday and fire brigade volunteers will be holding car washes every Saturday with proceeds going to the foundation. It's all about a child's brain Brain connections: The development of babies like Oscar Fitness, pictured, and children up to 3 years is the topic of a workshop on September 16. People interested in the early devel- opment of children can sign up for a workshop on September 16. The workshop run by the Brain- Wave Trust is called The First Three Years Lasts Forever. It is one of several adult work- shops for parent education hosted by Waiheke Playcentre which are open to the wider community. The session will be an information and research sharing presentation about brain development in the first three years. It will explore neuros- cience studies into the evolution of the brain and how connections are made early in the life of a child. It will demonstrate how children s early experiences impact them for life. The workshop will explain to par- ents how their babies brains form and the importance of relationships, especially with their primary care- givers. The workshop is designed for mums, dads, caregivers, teachers, grandparents and anyone interested in the development of children. The two-hour session will provide time for informal discussions after- wards when there will be refresh- ments on offer for a gold coin donation. The Brainwave Trust s vision is that one day every child in New Zea- land will get the best start in life because the whole community will understand the impact that early experiences have on the developing brain. Its aim is to raise public aware- ness about new findings in brain research and its implications for children s development. The First Three Years Lasts For- ever takes place from 3pm to 5pm on September 16 at Surfdale Hall. It costs $5 or koha and is not suitable for active children.
