June 2012 is Everyman Male Cancer Awareness Month

If you’re in this for the long haul ‘Keep your eye on the ball!’

Everyman Male Cancer Awareness Month is all about raising awareness to testicular and prostate cancer.

The disease is an even bigger killer than lung disease . Almost 43,000 men are diagnosed with a form of male-specific cancer each year in the UK.

Every year in June an advert is launched to make people sit up and notice – past celebrities who have taken part have included Dermot O’Leary and Robbie Williams.  It’s not an easy subject to broach and the easy-going nature of the adverts has helped reach a lot of men.
