Reviews for Testicular Cancer Society

Rating: 5 stars  

Hello -
20 years ago I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. I was 30 years old, newly married, a new house and a brand new career. How can this happen? Why me? What about the family that my wife and I wanted to start? Why now? I did not have time in my schedule to fight this battle with everything new in my life. How long will it last? How is this going to end?
Over his lifetime, a man’s risk of testicular cancer is roughly 1 in 250 (0.4%). It is the most common cancer in males between the ages of 20 to 39. The good news, testicular cancer has one of the highest cures rates of all cancers. The bad news, between 7,500 and 8,000 diagnoses of testicular cancer are made each year in the United States. It’s time to find a cure to prevent other young men from enduring the same thing that I had to.
After my first surgery to remove my left testicle, it was determined that I had an aggressive type of cancer. Crap, what does that mean? That means a second surgery. It was decided to go in and remove my abdominal and pelvic lymph nodes to determine if the cancer had spread. It did not. Over the next year, every month, I went in for blood tests and chest x-rays. In the second year, it was every three months for blood tests and chest x-rays. All looked good. For the following three years, I went for a yearly blood test and chest x-ray. Still negative! My doctor made the prognosis that I was cancer free. I could not have made it through this dark period of my life without my amazing family, super friends and outstanding doctors. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your love, concern and support!
My story had a happy ending but what about those that doesn’t? It was time for me to get off the sidelines, step up and help make a difference. Not only am I doing this for myself and all those young men out there, I am doing this for all of us that have been affected by this disease.
The Testicular Cancer Society is an organization that raises awareness of a type of cancer that many are afraid or embarrassed to talk about. The Testicular Cancer Society helps educate people about the disease and provides support for those that have been diagnosed, that are survivors and that are caregivers. I am honored to be part of such organization.
Thank you,
Jeff Miller

18 years ago I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. I was 30 years old, newly married, a new house and a brand new career. How can this happen? Why me? What about the family that my wife and I wanted to start? Why now? I did not have time in my schedule to fight this battle with everything new in my life. How long will it last? How is this going to end? So many questions. I did not have an organization like this that could help. This organization helps young men and their families understand the impact that testicular cancer can have on them and the steps that they can take to help detect this disease. And, if detected, a wonderful support group that they can reach out to for advise from those of us that have gone through the same thing they are experiencing.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would like for them to expand into other markets. I am in the Columbus area so it would be great to have a chapter here so that I can be more active in volunteering.

Was your donation impactful?

This non profit has been great in building awareness for a lesser-known, but still devastating disease in Testicular Cancer. This disease impacts young men ranging 18-38 in age and guys in that demographic normally don't like to talk about health issues. The founder, Mike has been wonderful every since I have met him.

I was recently diagnosed with testicular cancer (02/15) and this agency has provided me with tons of insightful information including immediate responses to my emails. I hope to survive and grow with them to help others.

The Testicular Cancer Society is a great resource that provides support and education for survivors and caregivers. Their outreach is amazing and the personal response I received helped me deal with my own diagnosis better than I could have imagined.

I am writing a paper for a class and the topic I picked was testicular cancer. I wanted to know more about it and how I can help. The website gives you lot of information in a fun way. They also have a great app that is very easy to use and every male should have it on there phone.

The Testicular Cancer Society does so many great things. They help bring awareness about testicular cancer. They help with access to care and with the quality of care. All of these things and much more that they do are very important in the successful treatment of testicular cancer. Thanks for all you do!!!
