Let's talk about … prostate cancer!

Civil Service Local: East, South-East and London (ESEL) invite you to our online event where we discuss all concerns and matters relating to prostate cancer.

In this short but powerful event, we explain the signs and symptoms of prostate cancer and discuss how men can speak with their doctors about potential screening. We will also talk about the ways men can lower their risk of developing prostate cancer.

Our speaker, Tony Collier BEM, is an ambassador, awareness speaker and fundraiser for Prostate Cancer UK. He will tell us his story of how he went from training for one of the world’s toughest ultra-marathons to terminally ill in just 36 hours and the impact that his diagnosis had on his and his family’s lives! Tony will also tell us everything that we need to know to help men be proactive about their prostate health and get diagnosed early when prostate cancer can still be cured and there are much better outcomes.

The talk is aimed at anyone who is, or knows, a man aged 45 or over so please do join us; it is only 30 minutes out of your day, but it may make a massive difference to you or someone that you are close to.
