Run to raise awareness

All this week we've been highlighting the dangers of prostate cancer.

On Friday we heard from a Yorkshire-based expert who's trying to come up with a cure. We also spoke to a cancer survivor who's hopefully on the mend. And to mark Fathers Day, both men took part in a charity fun run in York to raise awareness of the disease.

York university professor: "there will be a cure for prostate cancer"

Prostate cancer has been under the microscope at the University of York for 25 years.

During that time Professor Maitland and his team have built a clearer picture of the disease. It's resulted in major advances in the understanding of its genetic make-up, how it can be detected and, crucially, how it can be treated.

Professor Maitland says while many men are currently told nothing can be done, he believes there will be a cure in the future.
