Be There for Us is an awareness campaign brought to you by Johnson & Johnson with the support of Singapore Cancer Society and National University Hospital.
The campaign aims to encourage men and their loved ones to recognise the symptoms of advanced prostate cancer and to have the courage to seek medical help.
Men don’t like to talk about their health, especially if something seems wrong. Even when they have multiple symptoms many may not realise prostate cancer is the cause. Others will dismiss the symptoms as a natural part of the aging process.
The Be There for Us campaign recognises the social and emotional impact prostate cancer has on men as well as their families. It appeals to men to think of their families as a way of inspiring them to act when symptoms appear. It captures the emotional plea of family members to the men in their lives, encouraging them to seek medical advice as soon as symptoms appear so that treatment can begin as early as possible if needed.
In addition to educating the public about the symptoms of prostate cancer, the campaign aims to raise awareness of the available treatment options that can help patients live better and longer.
