We fund research to stop prostate cancer killing men


I’m taking part in Football to Amsterdam, a two day, 145-mile bike ride to the Dutch capital. We’ll be putting football rivalries aside to tackle prostate cancer once and for all. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. It’s a disease which kills one man every 45 minutes – that’s two men during a football match. But Prostate Cancer UK know that we can turn it around. Their aim is to make this a disease the next generation need not fear.

I was diagnosed with kidney cancer in April of 2019.  This came after a period of significant mental health problems.  With the support of The Changing Room, as supported by Big Hearts (official charity of Hearts FC) and SAMH I was able to build the strength and resilience to defeat the disease and change my life for the better.  I owe it to them to do all I can to help change the lives of others.  That's why I am proud to be taking part as 'TEAM BIG HEARTS'

Prostate Cancer UK has a simple ambition - to stop men dying from prostate cancer. Through shifting the science over the next 10 years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and support, we will stop prostate cancer being a killer.
