These are great people they helped my husband out recently. He is a testicular cancer survivor.
They do an amazing job of bringing a sensitive and extremely important subject to the forefront to help save lives of men of all ages.
I want everyone to know that since I was diagnosed with testicular cancer it was my worst fears the thought of having cancer was so scary I never knew it would be me but it happened and now I have met the Testicular Cancer Foundation. I met them through web search them and about 4 others. I emailed them all asking for info and just advise. Right away I was responded by this foundation and with so much compassion and such warm hearted talks , it has gotten me through some of the worst days ive ever had. Everyday they talk to me asking me how I feel, giving me great advice, and even an ear now and then. I sit here crying as I write this because when iwas diagnosed I really thought I would be alone through the whole process but I am not I have the foundation. They are truely the best and recommend it to even people that dont have cancer because they are there to help every life.
They have helped me realize there are lot's of men like me with testicular cancer.
I have recently gotten in touch with this non profit and to have the personal help they have offered and cocern they show was well above my expectations . Great great job. I was recently diagnosed with T.C. and to gain support from the tc society really has helped me with mental and physical problems ive come into . This society deserves so much recognition.
The TCS is an amazing organization that meets the needs of men how are fighting or have survived TC. They provide a platform for information, a space for public discussion, and ultimately a community for men who may feel isolated or who are seeking to become more involved in the effort to spread the word about TC.
I am a survivor that has come to feel much more comfortable talking about what happened to me due to the support of this non-profit. They are giving a voice to us and we could not be more happy about it.
I personally have not been diagnosed with testicular cancer, but that does not mean that it shouldn't be recognized. I knew that the Testicular Cancer Society was a small society, and not a lot of people talk about the cancer itself, so I wanted to try and make a difference.
Last year I started a charity walk for testicular cancer, and without help from the society, it would have never been able to happen. That was the first walk for testicular cancer that I have ever known of and hopefully it won't be the last. It is a great organization that connects one on one with anybody who needs help, advice, or guidance.
It is definitely one of a kind.
Last February I looked into doing a charity walk of some sort, but I didn't know what to do it for.
There were already so many walks done for breast cancer, and ahlzeimers. However I thought that nobody does anything for testicular cancer. I looked up the Testicular Cancer Society and sent in a form to be contacted about doing a walk. The next day I was called back by the President of the society himself. We talked for a while and that was the day I started organizing The First Annual Twin Cities Walk for Testicular Cancer. Having never organized a walk before, the Testicular Cancer Society was crucial in helping me every which way that I needed to complete my goal. And on October 26th 2013, The First Annual Twin Cities Walk for Testicular Cancer happened. It was a great event and a life changing experience in which I learned more than I could have ever imagined.
The Testicular Cancer Society has helped me reach my goal, and went above and beyond the call of duty to do so. Thanks to them, my dream was able to happen.

I know and have been friends with Mike Craycraft, founder of the Testicular Cancer Society, for almost 30 years and know as a TC Survivor he's passionately striving to raise awareness of and help eliminate male deaths from TC in Ohio, the US and around the world. He's committed to this cause and brings a wealth of knowledge to his organization and those he interacts with. Such an amazing man!
