A couple of familiar names have joined forces in Ballarat to promote awareness of prostate cancer.

Hawthorn VFL legend David Parkin (left) has survived the illness and met up with Ballarat motoring patriarch Peter Stevens (centre) who has donated a Nissan X-Trail to Ballarat Health Services to help with patient transport.

Male Bag Foundation Chair Rob Glover also dropped in.

The foundation has already raised funds for a Transperineal Biopsy machine at BHS, which has been used on more than 800 local men.
