For Isaac Rounds, having a positive mindset and being around his family were the main components that helped him battle his illness.

Mr Rounds is a survivor of prostate cancer, a type of cancer which is common in men.

He said being in a happy environment was something that helped him fight his sickness.

“Think positive, being happy, giving and sharing, is the key to beating the big ‘C’,” he said.

“My daughter has come back from five months cancer treatment and one thing that has kept all of us going is having a positive mind.”

He said speaking to each other and sharing about each person’s experiences was also vital.

“As a group we must share our experiences and what we know to all out there,” he said.

“Catching cancer early, we can start the treatment in good time and live longer with our loved ones.”

He also urged all men to make an effort to go for a medical examination and respect the decisions made by doctors.
