Waging War on Prostate Cancer

Help us in our fight to beat the third largest cancer killer in the UK.

The Prostate Project is a patient-led charity dedicated to providing support to men (and their families) with Prostate Cancer, increasing awareness of the disease, and funding world-class cancer research at the University of Surrey. We are unique among Prostate Cancer Charities in being run entirely by volunteers, with administration costs of less than 5%.

After 20 successful years of fundraising and awareness building, the Prostate Project is entering an exciting new phase. Completing joint funding of the world class £6m Urology Centre at Royal Surrey County Hospital was a notable milestone for us. This landmark Centre, one of very few similar facilities in the UK, is transforming the patient experience for men, women and children with urological problems.

Now we are campaigning on three fronts as we wage war on Prostate Cancer:

 AWARENESS & DIAGNOSIS OFFENSIVE

 

  • Fighting apathy, ignorance and embarrassment with PSA testing days and GP tutorial seminars.
EARLY STAGE CANCER OFFENSIVE
  • Fundraising for the Stokes Centre for Urology to ensure it attracts high calibre clinicians, nurse specialists and technicians, and has the most advanced equipment. 
ADVANCED STAGE CANCER OFFENSIVE
  • Fundraising for our University of Surrey cancer research team who are breaking new ground in the field of immunotherapy, which many believe is the future for targeted cancer treatment. They are developing new blood marker diagnostics and immunotherapy/viral therapy drug regimes for advanced prostate cancer.

Dr Nicola Annels

Prostate cancer is the No 1 male cancer killer in the UK. Over 47,000 men are diagnosed with it every year. It kills one man every 45 minutes – that’s more than 11,000 men every year. In its early stages prostate cancer is often symptomless. That’s why it is so important to catch it early
