Today is World Cancer Day. Cancer is an issue that will directly effect most of us in one way or another during our lives. I was proud to lend my support to the Men United Campaign at a reception in parliament last week. The new campaign aims to ‘keep friendships alive’ by encouraging men to see their mates more and do something great together to help beat prostate cancer. The campaign launch coincides with a recent YouGov survey of over 2,000 men, conducted on behalf of Prostate Cancer UK, which revealed that 84 per cent of men believe that spending time with their mates is good for their health and well-being.
