What the Five Valleys achieves...

We need your support here at Prostate Cymru, the more you raise the more lives you can change. Did you know prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in men in wales? The vital funds raised from the Five Valleys Sportive are used to help in many ways.

With your help we can support treatments and improve equipment for prostate diseases. To date we have supported GreenLight Laser treatment for benign prostate disease and funded the training of surgeons using the Da Vinci robot for minimally invasive prostate cancer surgery. Your fundraising can go towards funding research and innovation across Wales to ensure that Welsh men suffering with prostate diseases will have access to the best available treatments from the NHS in Wales.

Your help can support our awareness talks as we travel across the country educating Welsh men about the diseases and their risk. These awareness talks are crucial as Prostate cancer affects 1 in 8 Welsh men and the risk increases to 1 in 3 if there is a family history of the disease.

The funds raised are not only helping our cause now but supporting the future of the charity. Prostate Cymru supports the training of GPs with educational resources and the next generation of urologists through bursaries to study prostate issues further.
