Help us crack prostate cancer

Sledgehammer Fund

Our Sledgehammer Fund aims to wake up the nation to a disease that kills 10,000 men every year. That's one man every hour, and the number of men with the disease is rising at an alarming rate.

While it is already the most common cancer in men, prostate cancer is predicted to become the most common cancer of all in the UK by 2030. It's as big an issue for men as breast cancer is for women - yet prostate cancer gets just a fraction of the money for research. The disease is poorly understood, the tests aren't good enough, and the treatments can have life-changing side effects.

Men deserve better.
