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.

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 am the mother of a 30yr old son who is dying of a recurrence of Testicular Cancer. My son was first diagnosed at 19 and had over 8 years of being cancer free until his Cancer returned. I find that the Testicular Cancer Society is a great resource for patients and caregivers. People need to know that while there have been great strides made, Testicular Cancer is still taking the lives of men. I especially am grateful for the information that you offer and frequently go to your site to see what new information you have.

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

love to see this organization have a local face. Testicular Cancer needs to have more of a face, with real stories and statistics behind (and not those of Lance A). Men need to have more access to resources and other patients to talk to.

My nephew was recently diagnosed with Testicular Cancer that has spread - he just went through his first round of chemo that ended with him in the hospital.

We love all this organization does!

My husband was diagnosed with testicular cancer on 8/8/13 after he was kicked by a friend as a joke and it felt weird. On 8/13/13 he had surgery that removed the left testicle and tumor. On 8/30/13 we found out it spread to the lymph nodes behind the abdomen and he started advanced 9 weeks of chemo on 9/9/13. Since chemo, he has spent 1 week in a hospital because his white cell count dropped to 1. He also lost all of his hair and most of his muscle(which is what i think bothers him the most).
I came on this website looking for help and advice for my husband and for me, as a caregiver. This website has helped us understand so much about this disease and we are actually having our 14yr old son do self exams as a precaution.

Testicular Cancer Society (TCS), year after year, continues to provided essential services of educational outreach and individual support to the young adult men and those newly diagnosed in the Midwest and beyond. They are a leading voice in the awareness campaign, raising knowledge of testicular cancer through community events and activities that are designed to get people talking testicular health.
Being a relatively rare cancer (but one on the rise), TCS serves a very important role in making men aware of the signs and symptoms of TC, and promoting early detection through awareness and monthly self exam. They are a trusted and reliable source of support for many, many young men in the Midwest and all around the Nation.

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

I would simply want them to have more resources to offer on a wider scale their services. They are a great charity organization that has helped and continues to help those with testicular cancer with information and support.

TCS works by participating in testicular cancer awareness raising events throughout the U.S.A. and even in Europe. They are creative in their approach to raising awareness using methods that often benefit multiple charities like while simultaneously meeting their objective of educating young men about this their number one occurring cancer with events like Guinness World Record attempts at collecting the most sporting "balls" for youth charity. They regularly participate in national youth cancer awareness advocacy seminars and conferences, and have spread their message that early detection through monthly self exam and awareness of testicular cancer symptoms saves lives. TCS is a great non-profit that makes a difference in young men's lives.

This fine group of individuals have helped my cousin and her son live through their horrific bout with Testicular Cancer. It is with the help of these volunteers and staff members that not only did they give advise and support to the cancer victim, but they were also standing by the family as well.

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

It is too bad they can't help more people; I know that they are doing the best they can with the resources they have.

I first met Mike at a testicular cancer awareness event in London in 2009. I was immediately impressed by his charisma and passion for the cause. As a fellow testicular cancer survivor he helped me come to terms with what I had been through, even though I was diagnosed in 2000, and he helped me feel better about myself. He also inspired me to help raise awareness of this disease. What Mike is doing in the Testicular Cancer Society is providing much needed support to lads going through this disease and saving lives by raising awareness of testicular cancer.

The Testicular Cancer Society has helped me loads. They are there to talk to you through the testicular cancer battle and to put your mind at ease and to help with any concerns or just simply to chat about the weather. It really helps that the founder is a TC survivor himself and when he says "I know how you feel", I know he means it. I would recommned this society to anyone gong through testicular cancer....it's so nice to know there is someone out there to talk to.

Testicular cancer is not a headline grabber and there are very few resources for the newly diagnosed. The Testicular Cancer Society is there for those newly diagnosed and a leader in promoting awareness.
