Churchill's Head Porter, David Reece was diagnosed with advanced Prostate Cancer and in July 2016 and subsequently underwent a radical robotic prostatectomy at Addenbrookes hospital. Now he wants to give back to the organisation that helped him and his family.

During this difficult time, Prostate Cancer UK provided practical support and guidance to help David and his family come to terms with my diagnosis and treatment as well as additional help managing the after effects,  ongoing monitoring and continued recovery and management.

Speaking about the impact of this help David says:

"Their help and support is something that I will be forever grateful for."

David wanted to give back to the organisation and has joined the Men United In Song project run by Peterborough Male Voice choir which is made up of 40 men, some of whom are cancer survivors, who have came together to learn to sing and raise money for Prostate Cancer UK

Prostate cancer is a disease that affects thousands of men, many of whom may not even know they have it.  Often there are no symptoms and contrary to common perceptions, this disease kills. It is really important that awareness is raised and men get checked.

On 22 July, David and the rest of Men United in Song will perform an evening of choral favourites, ballads and show songs at the Broadway Theatre in Peterborough. Tickets cost £13 with all proceeds going to Prostate Cancer UK. Book online or T: 0333 666 3366.
