North Thanetís MP Roger Gale this weekend bared his arm and gave a blood sample in support of the "Dadís Quest" Prostate Cancer event held at Hartsdown College.
The MP joined dozens of other men "of a certain age" in volunteering for a PSA screening test.
Commenting on the event the MP said:
"Charlie Pepperís father was younger than me when he became yet another victim of the killer disease, prostate cancer. We know that far too many people die far too young of a condition that, if diagnosed in its early stages, is treatable.
