Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I'm running London Marathon in support of the charity Orchid who exist to save men's lives from testicular, prostate and penile cancers.
Prostate cancer is now the third highest cancer killer in the UK and according to recent reports now claims more victims than breast cancer. Whilst diagnosis and treatment is improving men in general are dangerously ignorant of the symptoms and remain reluctant to seek regular preventive screening. Testicular and penile cancer are less prevalent in comparison but the effects can be equally or more devastating to victims with low survival rates or a high likelihood of disfigurement and reduced quality of life for those who do make it through.
If you decide to contribute, your donation will be well spent on raising awareness through education and research to find ways of curing and ultimately preventing these cruel diseases.
