THE PROJECT

One in Seven is a charity musical project aimed at raising awareness and funds for prostate cancer charities. The project features a Melbourne rock and roll supergroup formed from members of legendary and upandcoming bands including Baby Animals, TheScreaming Jets, Electric Mary, Massive, Tequila Mockingbyrd, The Naysayers, Peta Evans-Taylor and many more. Local musician Josie O’Toole (drummer in Tequila Mockingbyrd) was inspired to launch the project following her father’s recent battle with thedisease.

           

Prostate cancer affects one in seven Australian men during their lives. It is currently the second highest cause of male cancer death yet it is one of the most survivable cancers if detected early (92% chance of survival past 5 years). What many dont know is that asimple blood test at age 50 (age 40 if family history) could show warning signs years before any symptoms develop.
