Cancer Resource Centre Campaign

Prostate cancer will affect 1 in 4 Black men in their lifetime. It is only by standing up and making your voice heard that we can make a positive change.

By sharing your experience of this condition, you can support other Black men and their partners as they go through this life changing experience. 
The 'Infopool' is a new website being built to provide Black men and their partners with clear, relevant information about prostate cancer so they can make better informed decisions about their treatment and care. 

If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, we need your help to ensure this new website is filled with powerful, effective content and shared experiences that will inform and inspire others, now and in the future.
