Titans help cancer awareness drive

RUGBY players have teamed up with a charity to promote Prostate Cancer Awareness Week.

Rotherham Titans players will join representatives from Macmillan Cancer Support at Parkgate Shopping next Thursday and Friday.

The charity’s mobile information bus will be based at Parkgate from 10am until 4pm on both days with the players backing the cause from 2pm until 3.30pm.

The service provides free, confidential advice and support about the disease and how it can affect other areas of life such as finances or employment.

Helen Tuvey, mobile information services co-ordinator said: “It can be difficult to talk about cancer but it doesn’t have to be.

“We’re grateful to the Rotherham Titans for joining us for our visit. We think they might also encourage a few more men to come and see us.”

To coincide with Prostate Cancer Awareness Week there will information available about prostate cancer, how to come to terms with it and how to spot the signs.

Urology nurses from Rotherham General Hospital will also be on hand to offer additional support.
