“So I went along to the doctors and while I was sitting in the waiting room, I was bit a bored, and something made me go and pick up this leaflet about prostate cancer. I asked them, ‘how long will it take to do this prostate test?’ and they said, ’10 minutes - and we can do it now.’ That 10 minutes changed my life.”

"It was a terrible shock when we discovered Ron had prostate cancer and especially to hear that it was so advanced there was nothing which could cure it, only treatment which could control it for a time. Until that point, we didn’t even know what the prostate was. My ignorance about the disease has made me want to raise funds and awareness. My tribute fund to Ron is a beautiful online 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."

"At the age of 53, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. The NHS provided me with brilliant treatment in terms of my surgery, radiotherapy and hormone treatment, but in terms of living with the side effects of all that, I felt quite empty. The truth is, no one really wants to talk about erections, ejaculation, and erectile dysfunction and they find it very, very taboo. I'm also gay, which adds an extra dimension. What I've found is that being positive in my head and positive in my heart are two different things, and to feel positive in my heart that is key to this."

“When I heard the words prostate cancer my whole world fell apart. I felt like a broken man and burst into tears. But then as I learnt more from reading up about it and speaking to Prostate Cancer UK’s helpline, I found that I had a good chance of being successfully treated, due to the fact that it was still confined to the prostate and this gave me a strong sense of hope.”

“My message to men is don’t ignore your health, take control. Be aware of the existence of prostate cancer and consult your doctor if symptoms arise. It can be successfully treated if identified early.”
