RACHEL STEVENS GETS TO GRIPS WITH MALE CANCER CAMPAIGN USING BOTH HANDS

The Everyman Cancer Campaign has a stroke of genius.

Steering away from madmen Yesterday, I decided to pursue one of my other BIG Angry subjects- that of Male Cancer Charities and there near invisibility to the outside World.
When out and about you see countless worthy Charity promotions for Women’s health issues, but Men’s health is almost a mere after thought as if WE don’t require specialist help !!.
Ribbons, badges rubber bracelets, clothing, all the charity paraphernalia is there for Women, you’d think charities were exclusively Women only!!.

Fortunately that is not so and two of my main Charity favourites can be found doing a difficult job finally getting Men’s health ON the radar.

THE ORCHID CANCER CHARITY
The Orchid Cancer Appeal is dedicated to funding research into diagnosis, prevention and treatment of prostate and testicular cancer as well as promoting awareness of these previously neglected diseases.

THE EVERYMAN CANCER CHARITY
Everyman is a campaign run by The Institute of Cancer Research to raise awareness of and funding for prostate and testicular cancer.
Prostate cancer kills one man every hour, and testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer in men aged 15-45.

In 2005 EVERYMAN put themselves on the map by asking Rachel Stevens’s, our very own sumptuous pop Mega babe and cherry popper to the masses to front their new campaign, included in the Campaign is a very informative and breathtaking little video about Testicular and Prostate Cancer where Rachel is on medal winning form doing her bit for the cause.
You have to watch this video it is TOO GOOD to miss.
WATCH RACHEL’S VIDEO

So for those of you who watched the video – Hands up all those who would like to be that plum right now? …..yes I thought so, you and you and you…..

EARNED MY RESPECT…..
I will admit that up till now the only thought that came to mind about Rachel Steven’s was that she was a genuine hottie knee trembler who should be on my lap getting a bedtime story, but now I would happily say she has earned my respect for doing such a sterling job promoting a Men’s issue that would usually go unmentioned.

For those of you unfamiliar with Ms Steven’s please follow these links.

Next time you are out, have a look around and count just how many examples of health campaigns there are for Women and opportunities to donate funds?-chances are quite a few, yet look around for a Men’s Charity…….if you find one your doing well, many chemists and general retail outlets are almost totally in tunnel vision mode exclusively WOMEN ONLY, equal opportunities in health provision, Ha – don’t make me laugh, Men’s life expectancy is typically less than women but WE get the shit end of the stick when funding and treatment is offered.
