RACE MEET PSA TESTING PROGRAMME

Since the start of this great initiative, almost 1000 men have been tested at 13 meetings across the country. Of those, 53 Men have been "in the red" requiring further follow up by their local GP. Of those,
19 men have been found to have Prostate Cancer. If they hadn't been tested, would they have discovered their tumours in time to make an informed choice about their ongoing treatment?

This is a great initiative that continues to deliver very positive restults:

The Graham Fulford Charitable Trust was set up by Graham Fulford to promote awareness of Prostate Cancer following the diagnosis of a close friend who died at the age of 58 and a close family member who died in 2007 with prostate cancer after a valiant fight.

Key Activity Our key activity is the arrangement of
PSA Testing
sessions throughout the country.

Our results are processed by our consultant urologist David Baxter-Smith who analyses the results and then sends each man a green, amber or red letter with the results. The red letters are followed up after 6 months and the ambers after 12 months.

All men from the age of 45 onwards (40 if they have a family history of prostate or breast cancer) are our main beneficiaries! We try to educate and encourage them to be aware of their health and not to be fobbed off when they are quite within their rights to insist on a PSA test from their GPs.

We are hopeful that, with the current new data coming through showing how many lives would be saved if a PSA blood screening programme was set up, we are getting closer!

All men should take note of their PSA score!
