Hosted by the dynamic presenter Danni Menzies, in this captivating episode, Kenny Logan, 52, candidly discusses his personal battle with prostate cancer and sheds light on the importance of early detection. He also shares insights into managing dyslexia and advocates for men's health awareness. Kenny's message is clear: regular health check-ups, especially for prostate health, can be lifesaving.

Beyond his advocacy work for prostate cancer awareness, Kenny Logan is a dedicated ambassador for Prostate Cancer UK and actively supports the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, which funds research for motor neuron disease treatments.

"I would say to people as they approach 50, start thinking about your health, especially prostate cancer. It's a real big killer for men in the UK and Scotland's one of the worst because lots of people just don't get tested," Kenny remarks.

"It's a little test, a blood test. Simple as that. Because tests have got so much better, it's not even necessarily a finger up the bum anymore. The PSA bloodtest can save your life. And for me, I was very lucky."
