The Chestnut Appeal Summer Ball

Come and join us at the gorgeous Duke of Cornwall Hotel in Plymouth on Friday 15th June for dinner, live music and dancing until the early hours and help us achieve our latest aims in the region.  

Our most recent fundraising campaign has meant that we’re now able to provide the most up-to-date in diagnostic equipment for faster diagnosis of prostate cancer which we started at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth. At a cost of £105,000 Ultrasound-MRi Fusion really is state of the art. We also have one in the Exeter area and have launched a fundraising appeal to help us install others in Truro & Torbay. Funds raised at the Summer Ball will go towards these projects.

The MRI -TRUS Fusion provides precise targeting and the best possible prostate biopsy currently available. Whether for a first biopsy or as a repeat biopsy, patients have a greater peace of mind knowing that the chance of detecting significant prostate cancer is maximised whilst minimising the risk of false negative results.

Over 47,000 men are diagnosed with the disease every year, that’s more than 120 men every day and that 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. Staggering statistics aren’t they.  That is why here at The Chestnut Appeal we put awareness at the heart of everything we do.

Men’s Health suffers from an imbalance and it’s the mission of the charity to highlight this most common cancer. We want to get more men talking about their health and taking action when they feel like something could be wrong. Eradicating the stigma that surrounds Prostate Cancer will play an integral role in reducing the number of men who die of the disease.

Your help will make a real difference in the community.

Raising Awareness is at the heart of everything we do!
