Let's Talk About the Hard Things Campaign

Let’s Talk About the Hard Things

Earlier this year, Prostate Cancer Research (PCR), in partnership with Tackle Prostate Cancer and pharmaceutical company Ipsen, launched a nationwide survey to better understand the experiences faced by people living with prostate cancer, particularly in relation to the challenges patients face with treatment side effects.

On the back of this research we have launched a new campaign, ‘Let’s Talk About the Hard Things’, spearheaded by Good Morning Britain’s Dr Hilary Jones, to break down the taboos surrounding the side effects of prostate cancer treatment and encourage people with prostate cancer to talk about their experiences with friends, family and healthcare professionals.

Unfortunately many men of my generation were taught from a young age to ‘figure it out’ and ‘emotions are for girls’. But talking to your partner, your family and your friends can make the world of a difference. I am so lucky to have a supportive network around me who I can turn to no matter the subject. I urge anyone undergoing treatment, no matter how embarrassing you might feel it is, don’t suffer in silence. Find someone you can trust and speak with them. You won’t regret it.
