Donate to Pelican Cancer Foundation to enable prostate cancer patients to live better, for longer.
Nearly 50,000 men in the UK are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. For men, it is the second greatest cause of cancer death (over 11,000 every year).
The good news is that more than 80% of men diagnosed with prostate cancer will survive their disease for more than 10 years. This improvement in survival has tripled since 1980.
What we do:
- Pelican Cancer Foundation supported early research into improved imaging (MRI) for diagnosis and the most precise treatment (focal therapy). The charity continues to support research studies in this area.
- Locally in Basingstoke, we support the weekly prostate cancer multi-disciplinary team meeting by providing purpose-built space and facilities.
- We aim to embed change throughout the NHS by running workshops for doctors and nurses to encourage wider use of new processes to give quicker and more accurate diagnosis.
- Support our prostate cancer research so that all men can benefit from changes to the treatment pathway.
Prostate cancer asks men (and their families) to make very difficult decisions about their treatment journey. We want to make sure that all men get the best diagnosis and most precise treatment – resulting in a better quality of life.
