We fund research to stop prostate cancer killing men


As an added incentive, if you make a donation you will get to have your website/blog/social network page added to my blog charity page (as long as it doesn't fall under NSFW), which will be the homepage until the end of the year. Those who make bigger donations will sit higher up the page, and multiple donors can count as multiple page links or bump your page position rank.

Why Prostate Cancer UK? Every year my colleague does the Movember challenge. I always sponsor him but last year was the first time I took the time to read up what prostate cancer actually is. Facts I found include that 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, with that ratio increasing to 1 in 4 for black males. Prostate cancer also gets less than half of the funding when compared to breast cancer for treatment, research and education. Current analysts predict it will be the UK's most common cancer by 2030. With another colleague's in-law diagnosed with the disease it was a bit of an eye opener!
