Cansa launches the P-ball

Be a master blaster and do your wee bit against cancer
CANSA has launched the novel P-ball game to create awareness of male cancers. The P-ball is a small biodegradable ball that can be placed in a urinal, the aim is to destroy the P-ball in the shortest possible time to gauge the strenght of the urine system. A weak urine stream may be a warning sign of prostate cancer and men experiencing it should consult their doctor.
The P-ball game was launched at CANSA’s successful inaugural men’s health breakfast, held 2 June 2009 at the Sandton Convention Centre. Everyone who attended were fascinated and intrigued by this unusual game. Although a fun product, using a P-ball reminds men to be proactive and go for regular cancer screening tests to detect men’s cancers early, when they can be treated more effectively.
To encourage all men to be proactive, husbands, fathers or work colleagues, P-balls can be purchased from CANSA offices countrywide. Instructions for use and important warning signs for prostate cancer are detailed on the box.
Funds raised from the sale of the P-ball will go towards CANSA’s men’s health and awareness campaigns around the country, to deliver CANSA’s early detection message and offer prostate cancer screening tests.
CANCA is proud to have the support of Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Mark Pilgrim, two dedicated cancer survivors, for their support of the P-ball.
