The TCF was an amazing resource when I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. They provided so much information - questions to ask the doctors, what to expect after procedures, and most of all comfort that everything would be ok. Really a great group behind this organization. They put survivors first and do an amazing job raising awareness about the disease.

The Testicular Cancer Foundation has been an incredible resource for testicular cancer patients, some of which I have been directly in contact with. It is great to see an organization run and led by survivors/caregivers of the disease. The passion shows in everything they do. From their education and awareness, to their support they give to survivors and caregivers they are at the forefront of the disease.

TCF is doing a great job serving the community and raising awareness about this disease so that young men can be educated and know when something is wrong with their body. The founder Matt hired me as a summer intern and I noticed that he works constantly at reaching out to others to make sure the organization's message gets out. This message is so powerful that it even moved me as a young man to be aware of my health and not be stubborn by keeping away from the doctor. This is something that all men need to be aware of!

I began to volunteer with this organization after my youngest son was diagnosed with TC. I too am a TC survivor 30+ years out. This organization has and continues to get the word out about this disease in an effective and fun manner. The best thing we can do to fight TC is to make sure that every male knows about this disease and Testicular Cancer Foundation and its volunteers work tirelessly to educate the public as well as advocate and support TC patients and their families. No man should ever die of this disease because of the effectiveness of treatment when detected early. TCF is saving lives!

My son is a testicular cancer survivor. I think it is difficult for young men to follow up on this personal issue and I want to make sure it is front and center for these young guys in the prime of their lives!!!! Good for Testicular Cancer Foundation!!!!

I was at a bar when you guys were doing a pub crawl. I went up to the information table and asked what you guys were doing and found out it was for testicular cancer. I bought a Go Nuts shirt because I think it's funny but you're doing great things. Keep it up.

I have been a volunteer with the Testicular Cancer Foundation for over a year now and I can't say enough about how great this organization is. TCF is all about the personal touch - they return phone calls and emails almost immediately; they jump on an idea or campaign; they visit with guys recently diagnosed as soon as they can; TCF is proactive in every since of the word. The fact that everything I've done with the organization provides awareness and life-saving information about this disease is powerful. I'm happy and proud to be a TCF volunteer!

Testicular Cancer Foundation is helping me become the man I am supposed to be and find my true calling in life. When I was diagnosed with testicular cancer three years ago I knew right away I wanted to be make a difference in this world. I wanted to be more involved with philanthropy work by sharing my story with anyone I could in hope of saving other young men from severe treatment, extensive surgery, or even death resulting from late diagnosis of testicular cancer. As a volunteer with this incredible foundation I am able to to give back to my local community by being a member of "Team Single Jingles Speakers' Bureau". They have helped answer my prayers by giving me the opportunity to speak on their behalf at various public speaking events designed to spread awareness and education about testicular cancer; the #1 cancer among males ages 15-35. They provide amazing support to testicular cancer survivors and strongly believe in educating every young male in the US about the importance of monthly self testicular exams.

I am a 5 year testicular cancer survivor who was 1 year out of treatment when I first got involved with the foundation at a cancer awareness event that they were presenting at. I was so excited to learn that there was a non-profit organization that was involved in awareness and education about the disease that I had just recently went through. Prior to this meeting, I was not able to find much information about how I could have better protected myself from the disease and I was wanting a way to give back to my community. The foundation immediately provided me with ideas to help out those in my area. Through their encouragement and guidance from the foundation, I began public speaking engagements as a volunteer of the foundation and have traveled to other states to share my story. Most recently I was able to attend a Speakers Bureau that was hosted by the foundation, where about a dozen testicular cancer survivors were flown into Austin to learn how we could collectively help the foundation to spread the message. At this event, I met a young man whom I have partnered with to do a cross country bicycle ride about awareness and education of the #1 cancer in males ages 15-35. The foundation has always been supportive and encouraging of my efforts in my local community.
