We are proud to be a supporter of the Maidenhead Rotary Club’s prostate screening event held on the 15th of April. Almost 200 men ages 40 and over were tested to detect the early signs of the disease.
About 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime; it mainly affects men over 50 with the risk increasing as they get older. While very low, there is also a risk for men under 50.
Organised by Maidenhead Rotary Club, the event was run in partnership with the Graham Fulford Charitable Trust, a charity supporting prostate cancer awareness which holds similar sessions across the country. It was also supported by Maidenhead Lions Club which has run the event in the past.
Rotarian Sean Egan said: “It was the first time Maidenhead Rotary Club has organised the prostate screening day and it ran very smoothly with nearly 200 men tested. It was a great learning experience for us and we hope to run future events that will test even more men.”
