A charity set up in Norfolk by a man who was diagnosed with prostate cancer is set to be launched on the national stage.
Mel Lacey, who is from Norwich, co-founded the Blue Ribbon Foundation in 2011 to help raise awareness about male cancers.
On Wednesday 9th May the Norwich North MP Chloe Smith will host a special reception for the charity in the Houses of Parliament.
Speaking ahead of the event she said that the charity has done great work but needs more support:
– Chloe Smith, Conservative MP for Norwich North
"The foundation does brilliant work promoting men's health issues, bringing these issues into public discussion in the hope that more lives will be saved. This is a charity started from scratch by a Norwich man and it's a tribute to him to have made it a success. Now we need national support."
