Bundaberg's Rob McCulloch has been recognised for his work to help men and their families who are going through cancer treatment.
He was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2007 and shortly after received surgery.
Two years later he became the leader of the local Prostate Cancer Survivor Group.
Mr McCulloch has recently been awarded Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia’s (PCFA) prestigious annual award for distinguished service.
He is one of four recipients across the country who have been volunteering for a combined 71 years.
PCFA chairman Steve Callister has commended the award winners.
“They are truly remarkable figures in the Australian prostate cancer community, dedicating many hundreds of hours of service to other men and families impacted by the disease and raising awareness to help us defeat it,” he says.
“Their tireless advocacy has advanced our work towards a future free of prostate cancer and has changed many lives for the better.”
