The campaign aims to raise funds for more work by the Men’s Health Forum to raise men's awareness of cancer and help them to reduce the risk of developing and dying from cancer by making better lifestyle choices and seeking help sooner rather than later.

Blue September now has a new website with video messages of support including from the Government's minister for care services, Paul Burstow MP, pictured, health information and information on how you can donate or run a Blue September event.
