Everyman - Funding research to cross out male cancer
Everyman is the UK's leading male cancer campaign
Keep Your Eye On The Ball
Keep Your Eye on The Ball was set up over five years ago by The Everyman Campaign, The Football Association and The Professional Footballer’s Association to raise awareness of male cancer within the football community.
The campaign was set-up in response to several high profile players such Alan Stubbs (Everton), Jason Cundy (Ex Tottenham) and Neil Harris (Millwall) being diagnosed with testicular cancer. Through the power of football, the campaign aims to raise vital awareness to a huge number of men, which can ultimately save lives.

I support Keep Your Eye On The Ball because it is important to make the fans and players aware of male cancer. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer to affect men between 20-35 years old, the average career span of a footballer. The good news is though that if caught early enough, it is curable in 99% of cases. That’s why it is important for Keep Your Eye On The Ball to continue to raise awareness, which will help save lives.
In the time it takes to play one game of football, more than one man in the UK will have died of prostate cancer. Almost 32,000 men are diagnosed with the disease each year, yet scientists still do not know what causes it. By supporting Keep Your Eye On The Ball you will be helping to raise money for vital research and also educating men about the symptoms to look out for, which ultimately can help save lives.
