Thanks Jen, it's a very valid question! You're quite right - the link between alcohol and cancer is definitive so at Cancer Council we feel that partnerships with alcohol companies would go against our work of cancer control. However, we have no control over what other foundations or charities do or what companies they engage with. As for your friend's fundraising idea, while there is currently no known link between alcohol and prostate or testicular cancer, it's hard to say whether or not charities associated with these cancers would be open to alcohol fundraising. Again, it's not really for us to speculate on their policies so probably best to drop them a line directly. Hope that helps.
