Female cancer charities rightfully get a lot of support and media coverage. By comparison, male cancer charities come a very poor second.

Prostate cancer is almost as common as female breast cancer and is the most common form of cancer in men. It might shock you to realise that prostate cancer is almost twice as common as lung cancer — source

A group of guys from Haddenham United FC will be participating in a Darts Marathon over the Easter weekend, throwing darts to count down from a starting score of 1 million!

To donate to the fundraising efforts of the Haddenham Darts Marathon, please visit the dedicated Make-a-Donation website

Please support this very worthy cause.
