Testicular Cancer is No joke
April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month
The reality that testicular cancer is still taking the lives of young men is No Joke.
However, humor is often used to help raise awareness because it is an effective tool at reaching the young men at highest risk for the disease. We think that humor, in good taste, is essential in raising awareness.
Please join us in April by using the hashtag #TCisNoJoke to raise awareness for testicular cancer.
There is irony in the hashtag so please feel free to be humorous or serious but join us in raising awareness for the leading cause of cancer in guys age 15-35, although it can occur at any age, by using the hashtag this April.
In 2014, 27% of the guys contacting us for testicular cancer support needed some kind of financial assistance.
All donations received via this link in April will be used to directly fund our Emergency Support Grants program. These grants are used to help meet the financial needs of guys diagnosed with testicular cancer and help assure they have timely access to care.
In 2014 our Emergency Support Grants were used to help pay health insurance premiums, car payments, car insurance, gas money, sperm banking fees and utilities for men having financial difficulties after their diagnosis. While these grants can't solve all of the individual's financial needs they help assure guys have access to care to get them through treatments.
Please contact us if you would like more information about our Emergency Support Grants.
