Our team of 10 are running to raise £5,000 towards the £50,000 launch costs for Prost8’s 1 in 8 campaign in August this year, fighting for the 1 in 8 men who will get prostate cancer in their lifetime.
Once launched, the 1 in 8 campaign aims to raise the £3m needed to buy, donate and deploy the first six minimally invasive focal therapy treatment suites into strategic NHS hospitals across the UK.

In the next 10 years alone in the UK, a staggering 500,000 men will receive a new prostate cancer diagnosis. Up to 120,000 of those will have low to medium grade, treatable cancer and could benefit from newer, cutting edge, minimally invasive treatments. BUT, incredibly, right now, almost all will only be offered the same invasive, lifestyle-changing treatments as men with advanced cancers.
THIS IS JUST SO WRONG – so please help Prost8 to change this sooner rather than later. After all, it could be you or a loved one who is the next ‘1 in 8’ so help make sure that the best treatment options are ready and available, just in case…..
