Together, we can beat prostate cancer.

In May one of our colleagues, Paul Kenyon, will be riding his bike for 200 Miles around Northamptonshire to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK. Prostate Cancer UK's top priority is funding research to stop prostate cancer from killing men. They are investing millions to find better treatments and better tests that can spot fast-growing cancers early, and could be used in a screening programme to save thousands of lives. Would you believe that 47,500 men are diagnosed a year with Prostate Cancer across the UK, which is around 129 men every day!. Every 45 minutes a man dies from Prostate cancer. Take a look at the Basic Facts and Figures Below.
