Former Premiership footballer (with Leicester City and Crystal Palace) Ade Akinbiyi joined Men United last year to help spread the word after discovering his dad had died from prostate cancer.
"When my dad passed away last year; I didn't even know he had prostate cancer. All too often men of his generation are too proud to speak about their health problems and that has to change. That's why I’m supporting Prostate Cancer UK’s tour. I want to help raise awareness that 1 in 4 Black men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. As Black men we need to tell our dads, brothers, uncles and friends about the threat we face from this disease. Just one vital conversation with your doctor could save your life. That’s all it takes.”
