Funding medical research projects to secure a future without prostate cancer.
Last year 56,000 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer in the UK. They are someone's grandfather, father, brother, or son.
Whilst prostate cancer is treatable in the prostate, once it spreads to other parts of the body, it becomes incurable and life-limiting. Our aim is simple: to fund the ground-breaking research into developing patient first treatments, which provide hope and a future for men and their families.
Thanks to our fundraisers, we have recently increased the number of medical research projects we fund by 175%. It is our hope that this will lead to further breakthroughs and the development of future therapies for men with prostate cancer.
