I have been fortunate in my story but if it were not for this and other web pages then I might be in a giggling academy. I have over the past few years found several lumps on each of my testes. 1 time was a cyst. 1 time was a pea sized hard lump that was a cyst gone hard and 1 time was a pea sized lump that turned out to be benign. each time I have had surgury and each time is just as scary as the last. I am dreading the day that it is the big C. but with pages like this that men can help each other just makes it that little bit more bearable
I lost my brother to testicular cancer and began raising funds for this organization after learning about them. Their founder, a survivor, was very friendly and informative when I would speak with him about their organization and what they do for testicular cancer patients and their families.
Testicular cancer society is one of the greatest nonprofits there is. There outpouring support during my trial with chemotherapy was beyond amazing!
This group does a great job of continually getting the word out about early detection and gets involved with individuals that need help navigating the complicated medical bureaucracy.
This team was crucial to helping me understand and navigate my diagnosis, treatment, and subsequent recovery.
I contacted this nonprofit many years ago asking if there was any way that I could help. I received so much support and guidance throughout my relationship with TCS. I know that I didn’t reinvent the wheel but with the help of TCS, I was able to educate and make many young men in my area aware of this disease and the important monthly self exam.
I knew nothing about this non-profit until my son was diagnosed with TC. We came across TCAF about the same time and we signed up for the Conference that was in Denver. What a great experience. My husband, my son, daughter-in-law and myself attended. We learned so much. There are a lot of great staff and board member ms that were so knowledgeable.
My son, 17, was diagnosed Sept 2018 with 3c non seminomas with widespread metastasis. We were so scared and had no knowledge of this horrible disease, or what came next. I found the group online, immediately realized the importance of this foundation and the research and education they provide for families like ours!! Its been a blessing!!
I knew nothing about testicular cancer until a family member was diagnosed. I found this organization to be very helpful and full of information. Thank you for all you do!
Mike is a passionate and knowledgeable leader . I found TCS after my diagnosis and treatment, but having spent some time with Mike, I’ve seen first hand the impact his charity has made. His enthusiasm has helped me in many ways and inspired me to spread the word about TC. There are many men alive today and families more at peace because of TCS and the man behind this non-profit.
I know first hand how difficult it has been for this charity to be functional.
Many of the bigger cancer charities receive donations and support because of their exposure in the media and nation wide events held. Getting professional help for the patients requires a lot of resources and co-ordination, no matter their locations.
We have started a non-profit organization as well called Schwetty, Inc. Our organization is also involved in the fight against Testicular Cancer. TCS has been very helpful in assisting us with our organization.
Incredible leadership advocating for men with testicular cancer. A great resource and support system.
TCS provides great education and support to those with TC and their families.
it also is helpful for care providers and educators.
TCS walked me through a variety of scenarios on my journey. Never once asking a thing from me but always giving, and Mike Craycraft always made me feel like my situation was his #1 priority!
When my son was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2009, this organization has helped me understand many of the treatments he went through. Plus it helped me understand how to talk to an adult son about something that was potentially awkward.
This non profit is literally life changing and Mike is so passionate about helping those afflicted by this terrible disease.
not knowing who to turn to when I was first diagnosed with seminoma I was searching for people who could relate to what I was going through. the good people at Testicular Cancer Society and their wealth of resources helped me immensely. I was able to educate myself and my family because of all the great info Testicular Cancer Society has.
My son is a testicular cancer survivor! We are so glad to have organizations such as this one to help with this disease. I support this organization so much that my Amazon Prime sales have a percentage donated to them. I am glad we don't have to travel this journey alone.
TCS isan invaluable dource if information gor patients and their families.
By getting all the people together discussing the effects of these illness, the allow information to spread and also bring calm to prople who is hoingbthrough a terrible time.
Their help is invaluable
Back on March I de ided that whatever was going kn deserved a medical opinion.
From there in a roller coaster of emotions. From diagnostic to surgery to chemo, wo many questions many without a clear answer.
Thankfully the Testicular Cancer Sociaty help me navigate the worst part. There is so much information in its forums that i was able to educate myself and not got crazier than I was at the time
First place I ever went for facts I knew I could trust for my own work with testicular cancer awareness. Mike is a tireless advocate and does SO much for the testicular cancer community. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ for sure!
I have learned a lot of important information regarding Testicular cancer and the need to make sure that you have your children check themselves and speak up about it.
I'm facinated how well connected the Testicular Cancer Society (TCS) is worldwide(!!) if it comes to connecting patients/survivors with medical institutions /charities!
I'm based in Cape Town, South Africa and a number of survivors here found me/my charity via the TCS. Thanks for connecting fellow survivors to build a stronger supportive network - worldwide!
Thanks to the founders constant follow-up as soon as someone contacts him. Much appreciated!
(I'm the founder of "Love your Nuts" - a testicular cancer foundation in South Africa)
