Giving Men a Better Chance of Beating Prostate Cancer
Beating Prostate Cancer
The Prostate Project is a registered charity established in 1998 by prostate cancer patient Colin Stokes and his consultant urological surgeon, Mr John Davies. Our ambition is to give men a better chance of beating prostate cancer.
‘Get on Board’ funding a Mobile PSA Testing Clinic
The shocking statistic is prostate cancer kills one man every hour and only 30% of men with advanced prostate cancer survive 5 years. If prostate cancer is detected early, survival rates are excellent.
The Mobile PSA Testing Clinic is our most significant and important fundraising initiative since the Stokes Centre for Urology was opened in 2019, the purchase and kit-out of the vehicle will require an investment of around £200,000.
Working in partnership with the Surrey and Sussex Cancer Alliance, the NHS operated clinic will provide a high-profile mobile point of access to allow more men to get the PSA blood test used to help detect prostate cancer, reaching high risk groups and communities as well as helping to address the shortfall of men remaining untested due to COVID restrictions.
Fully equipped to perform around 8,000 PSA tests per year, the unit will be fully self-contained with dedicated teams of drivers, NHS nurses and healthcare assistants. The clinic will be available out of regular hours, on Saturdays and even at pre-booked locations.
Since January, we have already raised just over £100,000. To help us reach our target £200,000 so we can get the bus onto the road as soon as possible, you can buy a ticket for £10, click here.
Loyal supporters may wish to buy a ‘return ticket’ for £20 or a ‘season ticket’ for £100.
Early prostate cancer usually causes no symptoms so the only way to catch it early is to have a PSA blood test, so please ‘get on board’ and help us buy this clinical bus.
