The FOPS are based in Chorleywood, Hertfordshire. We have eminent Urologists, a Nurse Specialist and a local GP on the FOPS council, as well as support from the local Chorleywood surgeries. The group is led by former teacher, Bob Arthy.
We have FOPS who have experienced most of the various treatments that combat both prostate cancer and BPH who are able to talk to you.
We know that women can be very persuasive to get their men to act so you are particularly welcome to "contact us" about a partner or friend.
"The FOPS Case Summary" gives an overview of some of our varied case histories and you can find out more about each individual by following the links.
Also see our ”Aims” which sets out more formally what The FOPS are about and "Media Coverage" to hear Bob Arthy being interviewed in a BBC broadcast as part of our awareness campaign.
However, as well as serious discussion, we know that laughter is the best tonic in most situations to help cheer us up.
With that in mind the Fopsters (a few of the FOPS) have penned some words that go with both original and well known tunes to provide a more light hearted insight into our common problem.
See also "The Fopsters" for more songs and helpful videos that are particularly effective in raising awareness.
Please explore our site and if, at some stage, you would like to join the FOPS you would be very welcome to join us in helping others take on Tiger Cancer of the prostate - and give them the best chance to get back on with their lives, as we have.
