Craig Tracey, Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for North Warwickshire, has pledged to help eradicate the inequalities men with prostate cancer face after speaking with campaigners at the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham this week.
Despite being the most common cancer in men, those affected by or at risk of prostate cancer continue to face a number of injustices, particularly when it comes to access to the best treatments and aftercare support for their condition.
Prostate Cancer UK was at the Conservative conference calling for urgent action on these issues. As well as pledging long term commitment to helping bring about real change for men, delegates were being asked to show their support for the charity’s game plan by signing up to Men United – a new team which seeks to unite people across the UK against the common enemy of prostate cancer.
Craig said ““Prostate Cancer UK is an amazing charity raising awareness and supporting men who have been diagnosed with the disease. 1 in 8 men in the UK will get Prostate Cancer and understanding the symptoms are vital. Joining the Men United campaign is a great way to help getting the message out there and ensure that the best treatments are available”.
Whether they’ve been diagnosed or are simply concerned about prostate cancer, men can find out about the disease at www.prostatecanceruk.org.
