Every year over 50,000 men in the UK are diagnosed with prostate, testicular or penile cancer. Orchid exists to save the lives of men from male cancers through educational campaigns, raising awareness, providing dedicated Support Services and funding a world class research programme.
As a small charity, we need your support to help us raise vital funds to ensure that we can continue to reach men with important male cancer messages and provide support to those who need us.
