Livingston Rugby Club are supporters of the charity Everyman.
Everyman is a campaign that was launched by The Institute of Cancer Research in 1997.
Everyman was launched to do 2 things:
To break the taboos surrounding prostate and testicular cancer and raise awareness of them amongst men and women.
To raise funds so that our scientists could carry out research vital to improving the outlook for every man - and so cross out male cancer.
A survey conducted by Everyman in 2006 revealed that only 28% of men check their testicles regularly for signs of testicular cancer. A similar survey conducted by Everyman a few years ago also revealed that only 19% of men checked their testicles regularly.
So whilst the number of men checking themselves regularly remains low, there are signs that awareness in men is increasing.
The Everyman Campaign is doing a lot to raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancer with both men and women.
