Cancer awareness s something we should discuss, particularly us Men. Prostate Cancer the most common cancer in men, with 330,000 living with and after the disease in the UK. 1 in 8 men in the UK will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and that stat rises to 1 in 4 amongst black men. 11,000 men die from prostate cancer in the UK each year. That’s terrifyingly one man every hour and it’s set to become the most commonly diagnosed cancer of all in the UK in 2030 – which is why we must all act now to curb its power to kill.
In response to these stark statistics, Sporting legends Freddie Flintoff, Robbie Savage and Shaun Goater have teamed up with Prostate Cancer UK and menswear retailer, Jacamo to produce a limited-edition charity t-shirt, which goes on sale today, with 100% of all profit going to the charity.
This partnership aims to raise awareness and encourage more men to be aware of their risk of prostate cancer as well as raising money to help research into better diagnosis, better treatment and support for men. The Tee is available online and in store at Jacamo in a full range of sizes.
Freddie said on the collaboration, Freddie added: “We want to raise money, and also get more men talking about prostate cancer and if they become better aware of the risks and symptoms, then all the better”.
