Male cancer and travel insurance
One man dies every hour in the UK from prostate cancer.
It’s a shocking stat, isn’t it? One that highlights the importance of Male Cancer Awareness Month, which is taking place throughout June.
If you’d like to make a difference there are a number of ways you can get involved. In this post, we’ll show you some of them, from parachuting to simply making a small donation. When 43,000 men are diagnosed with a form of male-specific cancer each year in the UK, every penny counts. We’ll also explain how, when it comes to travel insurance, male cancer patients don’t need to break the bank to get specialist cover.
Male Cancer Awareness Month is run by Everyman, a UK based charity who help to fund research into prostate and testicular cancers. They are keen to promote a number of ways you can get involved to help raise awareness of male-specific cancers.
Lace up your trainers and get running
Everyman has places in some fantastic running events, including the London Marathon, Reading Half Marathon, Royal Parks Half Marathon and Edinburgh Marathon. Join the team and you’ll be sent a running vest, a fundraising pack, a training schedule and a nutritional plan.
Jump out of a plane
Yes, you read that correctly. Everyman has links with 21 licensed airfields around the UK where you can experience the thrill of falling to earth from 10,000 feet at 120 miles per hour, shortly before opening your parachute and gliding back down to the fields below. Wow.
Take on an overseas challenge
For a truly life-defining challenge, take a look at Everyman’s overseas events. Trek the Great Wall of China, hike up Kilimanjaro, cycle from London to Paris – there’s a bunch of challenges to choose from. And whichever you plump for, you’ll be helping to fund the prostate and testicular cancer research of the future. How's that for motivation?
