Prostate Cancer UK tackled Yvonne Fovargue MP over prostate cancer issues. Over a table football ‘friendly’ Yvonne agreed to champion the charity’s fight to improve the quality of prostate cancer care in Wigan, and to help raise the issue on the party’s agenda.

Yvonne Fovargue MP said:

“There are 250,000 men living with prostate cancer across the country – many of them in my own constituency - and our goal should be to ensure all these men get the care and support they need regardless of where they live. This is an issue we need to attack head on if we are going to help more men survive and have a better quality of life. That is why I have pledged to help Prostate Cancer UK bring about real and lasting change for men in Wigan and beyond. By working together as a team, I am sure victory can be ours.”

Chris Kirby from Prostate Cancer UK said:

“Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and set to be the most common cancer overall by 2030 yet there are still wide variations in the standard of care that men receive across the country. We have vowed to lead a movement to change this and I am delighted that Yvonne has signed up to champion us in our mission. Men deserve the best, and we’re determined that’s exactly what they get.”
