TESTICULAR CANCER SOCIETY
August 8, 2014

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.

TESTICULAR CANCER SOCIETY
October 30, 2013

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.

Ways to make it better...

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

I would try to make the society bigger, and reach more people to spread awareness.
