At Labour Party conference I pledged to help eradicate the inequalities men with prostate cancer face after speaking with campaigners.
Despite being the most common cancer in men, those affected by or at risk of prostate cancer continue to face a number of injustices, particularly when it comes to access to the best treatments and aftercare support for their condition.
Prostate Cancer UK was at the Labour conference calling for urgent action on these issues. As well as pledging long term commitment to helping bring about real change for men, I was asked to show my support for the charity’s game plan by signing up to Men United – a new team which seeks to unite people across the UK against the common enemy of prostate cancer.
Men United v Prostate Cancer is a call for men to join together in a movement against the common enemy of prostate cancer. The aim is to build a united front of men against this disease. We want to get the message out about one of the UK’s biggest man killers, support men affected by it, and intensify the search for more reliable tests and treatments for the future.
Nearly 200,000 people have signed for the new team, Men United, since its launch in January 2014. But we need an even bigger team to beat the most common cancer in men. Together we can win this.
