Latics community Trust and Barry Kilby Appeal team up to fight Prostate Cancer

Date published: 26 March 2019

The Barry Kilby Prostate Cancer Appeal was launched in 2016 by Burnley FC Vice-Chairman Barry Kilby, who was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer himself with a PSA level of 80. Since then, the appeal has carried out over 3,500 PSA tests and continues to offer these tests at major sporting venues across the UK. Barry’s goal is to make as many men as possible aware of this dreadful disease and to encourage them to get tested so that they know their scores.

The testing event will take place on Saturday 6 April 2019 at Boundary Park, situated in the OACT Family Stand, between 10am and 1pm. No appointment is needed, it is simply just turn up on the day. All men over the age of 50 (or 45 with a history of prostate cancer in their family) are welcome with a donation on the day appreciated to help keep the good work going.

This testing event will also be kindly supported by both East Lancashire Prostate Cancer Support Group and Oldham Prostate Cancer Support Group.
