Author Alex Wheatle ‘I want my prostate cancer to encourage men to get tested’

Author Alex Wheatle is determined to raise awareness of prostate cancer after his own devastating diagnosis with the disease last year.

He’s teamed up with the charity ‘Prostate Cancer UK’ who say 1 in 8 men will get the illness with that going up to 1 in 4 in black men.

Alex wants to remove some of the stigma and misconceptions around getting tested and treated and share his own story in hopes it helps someone else.
