The Jetstar Gold Coast Titans will join the fight against men's cancer when they wear special yellow shoelaces and armbands against Penrith at Skilled Park on Saturday night to raise funds and awareness for the Cancer Council's Call to Arms Round.
Alarming statistics show that more than half of all Australian men will develop cancer by the age of 85 and all NRL clubs are uniting in the fight against cancer in men by wearing something yellow, raising funds and encouraging fans to get involved this weekend.
The yellow shoelaces will also be sold at the Titans vs Penrith match at Skilled Park on Saturday night for $5 a pair, with all funds raised helping to prevent and detect cancers in men, find new treatments, as well as support men in need by funding Cancer Council's important cancer research, prevention and support programs.
Jetstar Titans duo Luke O'Dwyer and Michael Henderson have both had their lives touched by cancer in different ways in recent years and are getting right behind the fight to raise awareness for men's cancer.
O'Dwyer sadly lost his brother Ryan to leaukaemia in 1998 while Henderson had a melanoma successfully removed from his back last year.
