Story

Cutting-edge scanning for prostate cancer is now available in Guernsey, thanks to money raised in previous Beard Up campaigns.

The scanning technology means that local patients can be diagnosed much faster on the island, with no need to travel to Southampton, making diagnosis quicker and less stressful for the patient.

The Channel Islands Cancer Report, released in July 2017, highlighted that prostate cancer is the islands number one cause of cancer death and is the second most common cancer in the island. Around 16 men die from prostate cancer each year.

Also, MUG is helping new Mens Shed initiative as well as education programmes for young people. As always, every penny raised by MUG stays on the island to help local patients and mens health.

In previous years, the campaign has also supported CAN Move exercise classes for cancer patients, the SHARE classes in secondary schools and implemented several health awareness campaigns.

We want as many men as possible to sign up for this years #BeardUp campaign.

Our ambition is to get 500 good men of the Bailiwick to get involved, make a donation and stop shaving for November.

The funds raised will help MUG continue its work and we want to constantly remind men to check any health concerns as soon as possible early detection of cancer can save lives.

There is a £20.00 participation donation, while businesses can get their whole team involved for £250.00.Male Uprising Guernsey needs YOU to grow a beard this November to support male cancer patients in Guernsey.
