The Lismore Swans AFL Club has joined the fight to prevent cancer in men.

During a pre-season carnival this weekend (March 10-11) players from Warwick, Goondiwindi and Jimboomba will battle it out against the reigning premiers, the Lismore Swans and wearing yellow armbands to show their support in the fight against men's cancers.

Lismore Swans spokesperson George Massa said "we wanted to get involved with the Cancer Council and get the message out to the broader community and raise awareness about cancer."

The current statistics are that one in two Australian men will be diagnosed with cancer by age 85. Compared to women, men are more likely to be diagnosed with cancer and are more likely to die from the disease.

During the two-day event, the Lismore Swans will be holding a raffle with the major prize being a football signed by Sydney Swans player Michael O'Loughlin, who holds the Sydney Swans club record for the most games (286) and, with 497 goals, and is second only to the great Bob Pratt (681).
