Rebecca Porta, Chief Executive of Orchid, says: “Every year over 37,000 men are diagnosed with a male cancer. Raising awareness is vital and we are thrilled to be partnering with London College of Fashion and Raging Bull to produce this creatively powerful T-shirt that we believe will reach new audiences, encouraging greater awareness of male-specific cancer and raise funds for the charity.”
This year's awareness week is all about the role women have to play in supporting men to be male cancer aware. So ladies why not buy a t-shirt for the men in your life!
