About the Testicular Cancer Society
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit, public charity that is committed to raise awareness and education for the most common form of cancer in men ages 15-35 and provide support for fighters, survivors, and caregivers.
Through our omni-channel, award-winning campaigns we are not just increasing awareness but creating a culture of self-examination to increase the chances of early stage diagnosis, when testicular cancer is almost 100% curable.
Our support programs are designed to help those affected by testicular cancer navigate the best path forward and unite via community. Whether it is connecting those newly diagnosed to testicular cancer experts or to peer survivors our goal is to assure each individual has the most positive outcomes for decades of their survivorship.
Our goal is to be the resource on testicular cancer, to raise awareness and save lives.
When testicular cancer is no longer taking the lives of those affected, way too early, our mission will be complete.
WE AREN'T JUST RAISING AWARENESS.
WE'RE SAVING LIVES.
A message from our founder
When I was diagnosed with testicular cancer in June 2006, I was shocked to find that there were not many resources available for young men when it came to testicular cancer. As a clinical pharmacist and now a testicular cancer survivor, I felt that I had the unique ability to help make that change. I spent a tremendous amount of time contacting as many other testicular cancer survivors as I could to see what their needs were during their ordeal and then formed the Testicular Cancer Society to help meet those needs for the young men facing testicular cancer in the future.
My dream is to make the world of testicular cancer and young adult cancer in general a better place than it was when I entered it. Your support and donations mean a tremendous amount to me and with your help we will directly affect thousands of other young men.
I believe that testicular cancer survivors are one of the best resources that we have in helping pave the road for future young men battling the disease and I welcome your input/suggestions to help make the Testicular Cancer Society even more successful and meaningful. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
I hope that you can join us on our journey of changing the future when it comes to testicular cancer and thank you so much for your support.
P.S. I hope other young men don't make the same mistakes I made during my battle with testicular cancer. I waited over 7 months from when I first felt a lump in my left testicle until I went to the doctor. During that time, I convinced myself that I was going to die from metastatic testicular cancer when in fact the diagnosis was just the beginning of a new appreciation of life.
