Orchid Cancer Appeal
Over 50,000 men are diagnosed every year in the UK with testicular, prostate and penile cancer. Orchid Cancer Appeal is the UK’s leading charity working in the area of male-specific cancers. The charity provides support to people affected by or interested in these cancers through funding world-class research, awareness and education campaigns, training programmes and a range of vital support services. These services include Orchid Male Cancer Information Nurse Specialists, a freephone National Male Cancer Helpline, a Testicular Cancer Counselling Service, a portfolio of publications, a testicular cancer microsite and schools resource pack “Your Privates”, a dedicated website, newsletter and community Roadshows.
Orchid works closely with health and social care professionals, community groups, schools and universities, other not-for-profit organisations, the business community, MPs and the media to raise awareness of these cancers and to campaign for better care and services.
