The Prostate Cancer Charity was founded in 1996 by Professor Jonathan Waxman. At the time they were the first national organisation for prostate cancer in the UK. Starting with only five members of staff and their helpline based in a small room in Hammersmith Hospital one day a week, they grew and are now the UK’s largest men’s health charity. In 2012, they merged with Prostate Action, making them grow more in size, strength and influence but still working on their ambition: ‘To put men at the heart of everything they do’.
Their biggest aim is to improve the care and welfare of those affected by prostate cancer, increase investment in research, and raise public and political awareness of a long-neglected disease.
