Rugby star Gavin Henson strips off to raise awareness for male cancer

Gavin Henson, has completely stripped off for a special photo shoot for the October edition of Cosmopolitan magazine.

It was for the Everyman campaign to raise awareness about prostate and testicular cancer and encourage men to get themselves regular checked.

Everyman's mission is to stamp out testicular and prostate cancer. We can achieve this by making everyone recognise the tell-tale signs, and understand the importance of treating them. By increasing this awareness we also hope to raise money to fund our life-saving research.

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.

Now boys and girls, get ready for the picture - yummy!  Lucky husky.

Would love to tut at such unseemly blogging, but can't. Thanks, it brightened my morning.
