Join Ugo Monye in the fight against prostate cancer this Black History Month.
October marks the start of Black History Month, celebrating the history, achievements and contributions of black people in the UK.
Rugby star Ugo Monye joined the fight against prostate cancer when he learned that 1 in 4 black men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives.
I was shocked to discover that I’m at a higher risk of prostate cancer because I’m black.
This October, he wants to spread the word, so men are aware of their risk and get diagnosed early. As a former England and Harlequins rugby player and seasoned pundit, Ugo is keen to use the World Cup buzz to get rugby fans raising money to tackle this devastating disease.
Here's three things you can do to support Ugo this Black History Month.

For #BlackHistoryMonth, help us share our leaflet for black men. It explains what the prostate is and describes the three most common prostate problems. https://t.co/AGGGqEmFUM pic.twitter.com/H3DJPp276o
