Sharing your story on the infopool and what it means
Before sharing your story we would ask that you please review the information on this page carefully. Thank you
The infopool is a website that has been built for people affected by prostate cancer.
It has been built by Prostate Cancer Research (PCR).
The infopool has been developed to provide clear, simple information about:
- Diagnosing prostate cancer
- Possible treatments choices for prostate cancer
- Living with side effects
- Finding suitable clinical trials.
- PCR are collecting hundreds of real stories and experiences from people who have been affected by prostate cancer. You can help by sharing your story and information.
- By sharing your experience and information it will help other people understand the possible effects of treatment and make better informed choices. It will also help them learn how to live with any side effects they may have after treatment.
- Share your story but remain anonymous (use an alias and don't upload a photo of yourself)
- Share your story and share your first name, a photo of yourself and some other information like your age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc. This basic information will be visible to users of the infopool to help them understand your experience and how it might relate to their own.
- Let us know you are interested in being filmed sharing your story when you create an account. Alternatively, you can email our Communities and Communication Executive Harriet at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know.
