Dad you're the man who made me laugh so much it hurt. You're the man.

Celebrate the memories of the man

Ron_McCoo_borderWhether they made you laugh, inspired you or simply gave you so many happy times, a You're the Man Tribute Fund is a positive way to remember a friend or loved one and help more men survive prostate cancer in the future.

Your individual online fund will bear your loved one's name and you can invite family, friends and colleagues to pay their own tribute by posting messages on the fund and making donations or organising events. You can also add your own special memories in the form of photographs, words, music and even videos.

"My tribute fund to Ron is a beautiful on-line memorial. I'm proud that I can continue in his name to fight as bravely as he did against this disease to try and help more men in the future."

Terri McCoo, wife of the late Ron McCoo

How your fund will help more men survive

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. Every year, 40,000 more men are diagnosed - husbands, dads, uncles, grandpas, brothers and sons. We fight to help more of these men survive and enjoy a better quality of life.

Setting up a You're the Man Tribute Fund can help you keep your memories alive and help us to:

  • Anna John FraserSupport men and provide the information they need
  • Fund the research that will make the vital breakthroughs
  • Lead change to raise awareness and vastly improve care

The money you raise will be crucial in helping us support men like John, one of 250,000 men living with prostate cancer in the UK today.

"The only information or help that seemed to be available was a leaflet from the GP, so I contacted Prostate Cancer UK's Specialist Nurses. They listened, were caring and gave me all the information I needed."
