My Dad, John Frederick Sheppard fought Prostrate Cancer for 9 years. He was treated in 2010 at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge and underwent a new trial treatment with Gold Seed Placement and Radiotherapy for his diagnosis. Although he had to take various medications in the last 2 years the medication started to fail and although trying newer and different medication not without side affects the cancer spread to his pelvis and bones. 2019 my Dad deteriorated especially in the last few months of his life and pasted away on 28th July 2019 aged 77 years, 4 weeks before his 78 birthday. He regularly went to the Macmillan Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for his post treatment check ups where he enjoyed conversing with the Macmillan nurses who helped treat him.
At his funeral we had a collection for Macmillan Cancer Support and Prostrate Cancer UK. We have split the collection 50/50 between the two Charities. We hope this will help in your cause against cancer. Thank you to all who gave generously to help these charities.

With warm regards from The Sheppard Family.
