TCS is awesome. For many years I've felt so alone as a bilateral testicular cancer survivor and as soon as I reached out to TCS for some help they contacted me right away. I've been in touch with two amazing guys who understand me. Now I know I'm not alone anymore. I get excited when I see an email or message on my device from TCS!! Only if I had reached out to this awesome society a long time ago!!!

Mike from TCS reached out to our family after coming across our online fundraiser. He was super insightful, offering a ton of guidance through a terrifying and confusing period. I've never had such a wonderful experience with an organization that actually cares on an individual level! TCS is really amazing - thank you, Mike!

The TCS helped me through one of the most overwhelming times of my life. Mr. Mike Craycraft answered all my questions regardless of the time of day or night. If he was awake, he would reply. The website was highly beneficial with the links and survivor stories.

Forever grateful.

I can speak first hand about Mike C and the supportive community of the TCS. In short, I'm a TC Survivor, and Mike was one of the first people I connected with to help me get through my process. Aside from offering advice, supportive information, and resources - he offered friendship. He went above and beyond the call of duty. - BJ L

2013 I found I had testicular cancer, I was scared and alone (I'm a expat living in Indiana), Mike and The Testicular Cancer Society has been an invaluable form of support and information during these times. To illustrate how great there support has been, during a period before my chemo the oncologist office called me and made a ridiculous demand. After seeking TCS advice, I was informed I would be treated and it was to start the next week. They didn't have to step up for me but they did. A great foundation for people afflicted with this horrible disease.

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

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.
