“I was diagnosed with prostate cancer just over two years ago. Luckily the cancer wasn’t too far advanced, and I was offered a choice of treatments. It’s always good to have options, but I didn’t understand the risks and rewards or the pros and cons of each one. Me and Caroline were struggling to make such a life changing decision within a matter of weeks.
“This is where Prostate Cancer UK came to the rescue. We found their online resources to be such a help, and speaking to a Specialist Nurse was a turning point for us. The nurse listened, explained, and checked we had understood. She treated us as a couple, in acknowledgement of the impact prostate cancer has on men and their partners too. This enabled us to think with clarity and the relief was huge.
“The money you raise money will allow Prostate Cancer UK to continue to support men, their wives, partners and families, and to help fund research to stop prostate cancer being a killer.”
