"That little kit thing saved my life”

A couple from Havering, north east London, tell us how getting checked early for prostate cancer can save lives. 

Jeanette ordered a quick and simple PSA test at home for her husband, Shaun, after seeing a Facebook ad from the “It’s Not a Game’ campaign run by the North East London Cancer Alliance. Shaun had no symptoms but, as he has a family history of prostate cancer, Jeanette thought he should do a test.

His test resulted in prostate cancer being found at an early stage, which was then treated and cured. As Shaun says, "That little kit thing saved my life”. Watch the full story now on YouTube: https://youtu.be/V1NxwkIeqNM 

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the UK, with more than 140 men diagnosed every day. But here's the good news: when diagnosed early, nearly 100% of men survive. The prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test is a simple blood test that can detect early signs of prostate cancer, even before any symptoms appear.

Men over 50 and living in north east London can get for a FREE PSA test to be delivered to their home. Be like Shaun and Jeanette and order your kit today from https://www.itsnotagame.org.uk
