Benjamin's Brothers

Benjamin’s Brothers puts the people who live with the greatest risk of early death through prostate cancer at the forefront of our minds. Awareness of this devastating disease saves lives.

Our prostate cancer nurse specialist Roger Wheelwright and a team of health activists are working in African and Caribbean communities in the city, raising awareness and encouraging conversation.

More than 3,700 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in the West Midlands every year and men of African Caribbean heritage are twice as likely to develop prostate cancer. It’s a condition which kills one in four African Caribbean men.

Our team of staff and volunteers are changing that. With the help of our specially commissioned rubber bottoms, they are holding workshops and events across the West Midlands. It’s a hands-on way of learning about prostate cancer.
