Jill & Leah Costello
ManUp! Australia | For Prostate Cancer
Brian and Jill Costello founded ManUp! in 2010 after Brian was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Jill had previously been diagnosed with breast cancer and they quickly realised there was a vast difference in the level of awareness, support and funding between the two diseases. They felt there was a need to raise the awareness of prostate cancer in the community and set about to try and make a difference. Brian was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2016 and very sadly passed away in March 2018. Leah, their daughter, now works with Jill and together they travel around Queensland and New South Wales to educate men about prostate cancer and the need for regular testing. They now visit more than seventy regional and rural communities as part of their educational program.
