'When it comes to health, women remain pivotal in encouraging men to be self-aware,' said Hannah Crabtree, Communications Manager at the Everyman Campaign. 'Cosmopolitan's Naked Centrefolds have consistently proven to be a fun and effective way of raising awareness of a very serious issue. Through its Centrefolds activity, Cosmopolitan has helped raise vital funds for the 37,000 men a year diagnosed with male cancer.'

The Everyman Campaign is run by The Institute of Cancer Research to raise awareness of, and funds for research into, male cancer at the Everyman Centre - Europe's first and only centre dedicated to male cancer research.
