I volunteer for this organization, and I've never seen a group of people work harder, nor who have sacrificed more for their cause, than the Jones family and their foundation. I have put many countless hours of various volunteer work into the Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation, and would not have done so, nor would I continue to do so, had I not felt so strongly about both the organization, and the people behind it.
This foundation is incredible. They do so much to help educate people about testicular cancer. I highly recommend them as a reputable, honest, and trustworthy charity. Their work speaks for itself.
The Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation is a much needed resource for those with TC and their family. The work they do to help raise awareness about this form of cancer is amazing. This foundation is very near and dear to the founder, Kim Jones', heart since it was founded due to her own son's fight with Testicular Cancer. The TCAF and Jordan Jones' story has, no doubt, helped to save the lives of many men through awareness, teaching early detection and services they provide. My husband was diagnosed with TC in 2002 and had a recurrence this year 2016, after almost 14 years. It was this year that I found this foundation. If you can donate to this amazing foundation to help them continue their great work that would be awesome. If you're unable to donate, perhaps you can help spread the word about them to raise awareness. If you shop on Amazon, then another great way to give to the TCAF is to shop smile.amazon.com and choose TCAF as your charitable organization and Amazon donates 0.5% of your eligible purchases to them. Same prices, products and Prime. I shop there all the time and I like knowing that a portion of my eligible purchases goes to TCAF. The TCAF is a great organization and any form of support you can provide to this foundation can only benefit every male and their loved ones. Let's face it...we all have a male in our lives in some capacity...whether it's a father, brother, son, husband, uncle, partner...you get the picture...and we can all support and help raise awareness for this disease that isn't talked about as much as it should be because not enough people are aware it exists. Great foundation. Great work they're doing. Great if you can help in some way. Great place to start if you find yourself newly diagnosed with TC or are a loved one of a TC fighter. Just great.
28 year survivor of testicular cancer that has gotten such solace and strength from this incredible source of support , information and general goodness! Wish It was part of my life back then but delighted it around now.
I first reached out to TCAF when my son was diagnosed and going through treatment in 2014/2015. I received an hour long phone call with support and information and also received educational information to distribute to area schools and doctor's offices. Recently when the founder, Kim Jones, learned we would be vacationing near her she scheduled a trip to meet us and our son. The support we have received from TCAF has been outstanding--very sensitive, very kind, and very personal. Unbelievable support.
The Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation is a group that unfortunately, many folks find out about after becoming a Testicular cancer patient.
What TCAF has done to provide awareness to young adults is incredible as they are looking to bring awareness to the forefront (meaning, pre diagnosis). This organization has been founded, funded and supported by those with genuine human character.
I was lucky during my own battle with Testicular Cancer to have come across TCAF and to become friends with founder Kim Jones. I worked briefly as a volunteer for them later on. This foundation does more to help those battling TC than any other. The level of compassion from the volunteers and board members alike is unrivaled. And the support groups they have helped to set up are a blessing to all those involved.
When I was first diagnosed with testicular cancer, Jordan Jones' story was the first I came across.
Now, 3 years later, Im happy to have had a chance to have spoken with Kim Jones, Jordans mother and have contributed to the foundation and really hope to be able to do more... A LOT more, in the future/
This community has been such a support to me through diagnosis, treatment, and has helped me to navigate recovery
