My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Prostate cancer
Mental health and suicide prevention

I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH AGGRESIVE PROSTATE CANCER ON 22nd JUNE, 2016 & YES, I COULD HAVE BEEN DEAD BY NOW!

I was very, very lucky to undergo a robotic prostatectomy with the brilliant surgeon, Declan Cahill, on 20th August 2016. I was just weeks away from my tumour breaking out of my prostate and attacking my lymph nodes, bones and anything else it could attack!

This would have meant I would live with metastasized prostate cancer until my demise. Now only 27% of such victims across the world survive beyond 5 years from diagnosis, so YES, I COULD HAVE BEEN DEAD BY NOW!

Currently I am cancer free and dedicated to bringing awareness to the world of how prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men's mental health not only lead at worst to an early demise, but also the major impact on the quality of life the survivors endure.

Plus, of course, the misery it brings to millions of families across the globe.

You can find out more about my story here:
https://uk.movember.com/mens-health/quality-of-life

ADDED TO THIS - two life long friends died by suicide in September 2008 and December 2011 respectively.

It stuns, hurts & shakes you to the core of your soul when you are informed of such sad and desperate news. The hurt never, ever, ever, leaves you.

SO... Please help me to stop men dying too young; please donate whatever you can. Many, many thanks in advance,
Love & Light

HUGE and very grateful thanks to the Mace Team currently involved in the construction of '40 Leadenhall London'; a magnificent 34-storey building that shall recall the classic North American skyscrapers of the early 20th century. (Hence, the building is affectionately known as 'Gotham City') This wonderful donation stems from a day of Movember presentations I performed on the project, during Wednesday, 7th December, for the workforce and the project's management team. It was a brilliant day and I am extremely grateful to the Mace Team; Thank you so much Guys!!!

PLEASE SHARE MY STORY ON ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION
My story; captured so eloquently by UK newspaper, 'The Telegraph', is all about an issue not discussed because it is a taboo subject. Erectile Dysfunction is a consequence of prostate cancer that people are steering away from. But unless we raise the issue, nothing will be done about it! Talking about my experience is exactly what needs to happen to help men living with prostate cancer and specifically those who underwent a prostatectomy. Many thanks in advance for sharing my story!

PLEASE SHARE THIS LOVELY ARTICLE FAR AND WIDE!
Many thanks in advance and much Love and Light, Elvinx

MOVEMBER UPDATE
Had an utterly WONDERFUL day on the Mace Group's Chelsea Barracks project, presenting on Prostate Cancer Awareness. My colleagues were just the best. The sessions were really enjoyable to present. ALWAYS get a laugh when I ask a member of the audience, "Do you think I've got my erections back yet?"
Thank you guys, much appreciated!
Also a close up of the Mo's progress!
