As Wales’ leading cancer charity, we have years of experience delivering cancer care to the heart of communities and supporting people affected by cancer, whenever and wherever they need it most.
We’re working with Prostate Cancer UK, with funding from Men’s health charity Movember, to bring the UK’s first ManVan to the men of Wales. The ManVan travels to communities across the country to support men living with, and affected by, prostate and testicular cancer.
So, what is a ManVan?
The ManVan is a converted, 38ft American-style motorhome. It's bringing nurse advice, one to one counselling, couples’ counselling, group support and welfare rights advice to men who live in deprived or hard-to-reach areas. We know men aren’t always comfortable talking about their worries, so we’ve designed a space specifically with them in mind.
Did you know around 2,600 men are diagnosed with prostate or testicular cancer every year in Wales? Or that incidence of prostate cancer is 25% higher in Wales than in the UK overall*? As survival rates improve, each year there are even more men living with and beyond cancer.
Living with cancer can affect all areas of someone’s life; from their finances and emotional wellbeing to their relationships. Which is why the ManVan isn’t just for men. It’s also for their partners too, providing both one-to-one and couples’ counselling.
Prostate cancer and your sex life
There’s some things you might not want to talk about with your GP. Our specialist ManVan nurses are here to answer your questions about prostate cancer and your sex life.
Pop on board the first Friday of every month at Asda car park, Cardiff Gate, Pontprennau. No appointment necessary.
