Charity thanks Millwall fans for their support
Since Prostate Cancer UK's Official Charity Partnership with The EFL (formerly The Football League) was announced back in 2012 the charity has raised over £2m to help stop prostate cancer being a killer, and raised the profile of a disease not really spoken about.
Clubs and fans from across the EFL have walked, run, cycled, collected at matchdays and donated in the fight against prostate cancer. The charity has been especially close to the hearts of Millwall supporters since the club's link-up with Prostate Cancer UK in the 2013/14 season.
The money raised via the EFL partnership is funding innovative research projects to make a step-change in the scientific knowledge of prostate cancer.
Scientists are working on a simple genetic test for aggressive prostate cancer to help assess which men will respond best to a certain treatment. This project will make significant steps towards tailoring prostate cancer treatments towards the individual man and his cancer. It will help work out the best treatment for each man to have – or to avoid – and the right time to have it.
