Petitions for men’s issues seldom gain much traction, but I thank Chloe for pointing me to one which has secured over 49,000 signatures.
In the UK, as many men die from prostate cancer as women die from breast cancer. £350 million p.a. is spent on national screening programmes for female-specific cancers, £0 for male-specific cancers.
Kevin Vardy (53) has been diagnosed with aggressive and extensive prostate cancer, and the condition is terminal. His petition to Jeremy Hunt, Health Secretary, has secured over 49,000 signatures. I’ve just signed it, and urge you to do likewise, maybe leaving a comment too. Some background to the petition is here, and you can get to the petition here. Information on a new, more accurate test for prostate cancer is here.
Please take a little time to show your support for Kevin Vardy’s initiative. Thank you.
