Prostate Cancer Awareness

With one man every hour dying from prostate cancer and 40,000 new cases diagnosed every year the Lions Club of Reading and CircleReading aim to provide a FREE PSA blood test to as many men in the Reading area as possible aged over 45 who chose to take the test. It's well proven that early detection and treatment may vastly increase your chances of survival.We are hosting our next prostate cancer screening event on Saturday 3rd March 2018.

The test is free of charge to all men attending and is funded by Reading Lions Club. The costs of holding an evening of this type is approximately £14,000, largely due to the cost of the laboratory analysis (based on 700 tests @ £20.00 per person). Any donation you give is gratefully accepted and will help fund and expand this vital work.

My father died of prostate cancer 20 years ago and if this service had been made available to him he wouldn't have left us so soon.
