Prostate Cancer UK will spectacularly showcase personal, poignant and powerful messages across the UK thanks to a new touring remembrance structure.
The leading men’s health charity has launched The Prostate Cancer Memorial, an eye-catching installation dedicated to those lost to prostate cancer, the most common cancer in men.
The striking ten-foot tall mirrored steel pyramid is a dazzling display of celebration for the husbands, dads, uncles and grandads lost all too soon, and people will have the chance to purchase a permanent name engraving on the memorial to celebrate the life of a loved one they’ve lost to prostate cancer.
One of the names featured on the memorial is that of footballing great, former England, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Scunthorpe United goalkeeper Ray Clemence, whose son Stephen paid tribute:
“The fact nobody has a bad word to say about my dad says so much. He was such a great man, full of so much knowledge and you couldn’t not listen to him. He lit up every room he was in.
“He was also a tireless campaigner for Prostate Cancer UK for many years, and it’s a cause that me and my family will continue to support. So, it’s wonderful to be able to see his name etched on the new Prostate Cancer Memorial.
“Whenever I see Prostate Cancer UK’s Man of Men badge, I think of him. The charity work so hard to raise awareness and funds and dad was a big part of that. It’s a truly spectacular structure and a fitting legacy to my dad, and all the men taken too early by this horrible disease.
“I know what this disease can do to families. That’s why the great work from Prostate Cancer UK must continue.”
