Benjamins Brothers

Afro-Caribbean men are 3 times more likely to develop prostate cancer. We want to break down the stigma that surrounds it and save lives.

We did it!

On 25th Apr 2014 we successfully raised £3,062 of £3,000 target with 16 supporters in 56 days

12% of people in Birmingham are of African Caribbean heritage. Men in this community are 3 times more likely to develop prostate cancer. They are more likely to get prostate cancer younger. They are more likely to die.

At John Taylor Hospice we believe we can change this.

We want to take the conversation about prostate cancer into the community it affects most. We want brothers to become uncles, daughters to have grandfathers and sons to live longer than mothers.

We want to start a conversation about bottoms.

We need your investment to make that happen.

To change the conversation about bottoms in Birmingham we need £3,000.

This will allow us to take an anatomically correct model bottom into the community and raise awareness of prostate cancer and what to look out for to catch it early. This will allow us to recruit local health activists. This will allow us to launch the First Touch of Benjamin’s Brothers and make a difference to families across Birmingham.

Have a look at our film to find out more and then, if you want to make a real difference to families in Birmingham, pledge your support!

You can claim a fab reward to match your pledge - for example a John Taylor Hospice recipe book, or even a Benjamin's Brothers beanie hat.
