Story

You may or may not know, but in January 2015 my GP asked 'if I'd ever had my prostate examined'; I replied in the negative,and 5 minutes later he told me 'it didn't feel 100% right', so an appointment was made at Sunderland Royal Hospital.

9 months and several scans later, I was finally diagnosed with Prostate Cancer one sunny Friday morning at 9.30. 80 hours later I was on my way out of an operating theatre minus  my prostate; cured of this horrible cancer.

Everyone at Sunderland Royal; from Mr Green the consultant to the cleaners on my ward were fabulous and incredibly sympathetic; plus the help from Prostate Cancer UK - ONLINE and through their phone line proved invaluable during the next few months....so I and with the help of my sons and now YOU can now give something back, to help not just research but pay for those phone lines etc.
