Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. There are over 400,000 living with the disease in the UK – and that statistic is only set to rise.
As a British menswear company, Moss is making a stand against this stat because we believe men are worth saving. That’s why we’re continuing to support Prostate Cancer UK, and we’ve already raised more than £30,000 to help improve diagnosis, treatment, prevention and support for men with prostate cancer.
But a man is still dying from prostate cancer every 45 minutes. That’s dads, sons, grandads, uncles, nephews, mates and so many other loved ones. The fight against one of the UK’s biggest killers isn’t over yet. We’re going to continue working hard to raise vital funds for Prostate Cancer UK and keep conversations about prostate cancer going with our staff and customers to help raise awareness and save men’s lives.
Most men with early prostate cancer don’t have symptoms, so knowing your risk and doing something about it can be a lifesaver. But without a screening programme, too many men will still be diagnosed too late. Want to check your risk? Do it in less than 30 seconds on Prostate Cancer UK’s risk checker here.
You can purchase Prostate Cancer UK’s badges in our stores. Pick one up and join us in saying “men, we are with you”. The money raised from the pin badges will help Prostate Cancer UK transform prostate cancer diagnosis and help fund research to find a better test so that the men we love can live long and well.
As well, for Father’s Day this year, PCUK’s latest campaign celebrates all the best “dadisms” we love, and the ones we’d miss if we lost our dads too soon to prostate cancer. To celebrate the campaign, PCUK reworked Robbie William’s song, She’s the One, changing the lyrics to “he’s the one.” Watch the video below, and support their campaign to help raise awareness.
