Peter Ellis is a remarkable man. He came to our Harrow Road Community Champion Hub towards the end November 2018 to talk to men about Prostate Cancer. His was a moving story that captured the attention of both young and old men. He led the talk in such an open and friendly manner that everyone felt free to ask questions. What an inspirational man, providing insight into this horrible condition and helping men to get tested. His talk on the 26th November 2018 will have a mass impact on many men, their brothers, sons, nephews and friends. We need more men like him to spearhead the campaign against Prostate Cancer. Thank you Peter for coming to our group. One direct result of your talk is that more people in the community want to have more information on topics such as Type 2 Diabetes, Dementia, and other forms of cancer.

Peter, Thank you for coming down Friday it was great meeting you. Your presentation had a great impact on everyone. The work you are doing is great and I will make sure that everyone has your blog details.

Well, what have I learnt from Peter’s candid presentation? Don’t be embarrassed and certainly don’t be fobbed off! Surprisingly a simple blood test (PSA) is not done as a standard health check so you have to ask for it – I didn’t know that before his talk.
If you’re thinking of getting Peter in for an awareness talk go for it and don’t just invite men into the audience. I may be a woman (I don’t have a prostate!) but my husband does, my father does and my brother does. All of an age where they could be at risk.
Peter is so honest and open about his journey with prostate cancer that you can’t help but feel you want to share it with others. I hope you do, this is such a horrible condition that if it’s caught before you show any symptoms you’re more likely to have successful treatment.
