My story

[p]Update 29th of May - What a few months! Training has been ok but with the lockdown the run didn't take place. We will do the run but it's for a date to be agreed. Covid delayed our move to the new house but we have settled in now and looking forward to learning training routes around the local area.[/p][p]Thank you for sponsoring and I will update more often.[/p][p]Mark[/p][p][br][/p][p]Update 29th of January.[/p][p]Training is going okish, I had a week off last week and just back from a run which took me a new route and was the longest I have run in over a year! Body still in shock but still alive. [/p][p]My Prostate Project t-shirt has arrived as you can see from the pictures, thank you to Katherine at Prostate Project for arranging this and helping me.[/p][p]I have attached a couple of pictures, a before and after my latest training run! I appreciate January is an expensive month but any support you can give will be welcomely received and going to a great cause.[/p][p]1st of January the why.[/p][p]So, like many there is a history of prostate cancer within my family. My Grandfather died with it, my Father has had treatment over the last few years because of it and I have started getting tested. So much is still to be understood about this form of cancer which of course requires the right people and funding. What is great about the Prostate Project is that they don't have massive overheads like some charities, their admin costs are below 5% meaning that 95 pence of every pound contacted goes to where it is needed. [/p][p]What you should know is; [/p][p]Prostate cancer has become the biggest cancer killer of men. It kills one man every hour.[/p][p]Men are twice as likely to get prostate cancer with a family history (brother, father or uncle) of the disease.[/p][p]?Black men are a higher risk, so should consider having a PSA test from the age of 45.[/p][p]Each year nearly 47,000 men in the UK are told they have prostate cancer and more than 11,500 die of the disease.[/p][p]Cancer of the prostate can be treated effectively even if it has spread beyond the gland but the disease must be caught early to achieve excellent cure rates.[/p][p]It is vital that men over 50 are aware of the potential problem and consult their GP routine.[/p][p]More information can be found here [url=https://www.prostate-project.org.uk]https://www.prostate-project.org.uk[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
