Cancer is the most common cause of death in British men, with 86,000 diagnosed in 2014 according to Cancer Research UK. Paul Strickland Scanner Centre has been fighting to improve both diagnosis and monitoring of cancer since 1985, and survival rates have increased significantly since — but more needs to be done.

That is why Paul Strickland Scanner Centre has launched a new campaign to raise money to help tackle cancer in men, and raise awareness of Paul Strickland Scanner Centre's role fighting cancers that affect men. The campaign involves growing a moustache in return for sponsorship from family members and friends.

Prof Anwar Padhani, one of our consultants, said: “Better scanning is vital to improved diagnosis and monitoring of cancer and can make cancer treatment much more effective. With more funding, we can do even more, and that is why I am personally supporting the Moustcash campaign this November.

“Please get involved and help us fight cancer in men.”

How your money could help

Every pound you raise in sponsorship by growing a moustache will make a difference to the diagnosis and monitoring of cancer in men at the centre.

  • £100 could help pay for a radiographer for one day, giving men access to top quality care.
  • £500 could help pay for revolutionary new software that will help improve diagnosis of prostate cancer, a big NHS priority.
  • £1,000 could help pay for a brand new PET-CT, MRI or CT scanner, with advanced features that will make treatment more effective.
