Story

There has been a massive fall in the number of men being referred by GPs for diagnostic tests during the pandemic. So Fleet Lions are sponsoring home testing kits for prostate cancer.

Fleet Lions, working with the Graham Fulford Trust are offering Fleet men aged 40 to 70 a simple finger prick test that can be done at home. It'll take 5 mins to follow the simple instructions. Said Lion Brian Proctor, "with one man dying every hour from prostate cancer and 40,000 new cases every year, a home testing kit could be the best gift for life ever. Early detection and treatment may vastly increase chances of survival."
