Great group, very supportive . The organizer shares very important cancer information with people dealing with 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.
Testicular cancer society is a wonderful charity. As a testicular cancer survivor I know first hand the struggles and fear that comes with this diagnosis. The testicular cancer Society made itself available, alleviated my fears and I have since developed a great support system and friends. There are many testicular cancer charities out there, but this 1 is the most inclusive, does not exclude, does not promote a personal person or agenda and is run with integrity.
I met Testicular Cancer Society's founder, Mike Craycraft online many years ago after my son had succumbed to testicular cancer and while I was just starting to take my own steps toward creating awareness about testicular cancer. Mike helped me not only with my own efforts but in a personal respect as well by sharing his experiences with me in comparison to my son's struggle with the disease. When the book I wrote about my son's experience with testicular cancer was ready for publication, Mike was happy to endorse the book, and I had his endorsement printed on the back cover with an extended version on the inside pages of the book. I was honored by Mike's compassion and insight toward my book and my son's story. Mike is a caring and giving person who understands testicular cancer treatment and therapies by his own experience and by his profession as a pharmacist, and these qualities are evident in the way he has structured the Testicular Cancer Society and its operation. I have seen his organization grow stronger each year by Mike's resolve to make a marked difference in the lives of others who are faced with the challenges of testicular cancer. When I meet someone who has been diagnosed with cancer, I often suggest they visit Testicular Cancer Society's website.
My husband is a testicular cancer survivor and this organization has been nothing but helpful and supportive in helping him get the public aware and knowledgeable about this type of cancer that most people, my husband included before being diagnosed, know little about and rarely hear of. Great job!
I am a testicular cancer survivor. When I received my diagnosis, I knew very little about testicular cancer. When the Testicular Cancer Society found out about my diagnosis, they were there immediately with information that helped me gain understanding of the ins-and-outs of treatment and what to expect. I was also given support that helped me realize that the fight was worth it, and victory could be secured. Testicular Cancer does not receive enough awareness nationwide. Young men need to know what to look for and what to expect. The Testicular Cancer Society is a champion of this effort.
I have seen its founding member present important and needed information related to CT scans. This information and other endeavours that promote awareness about testicular cancer are needed. This nonprofit fills a void in the field of young adult cancer advocacy and awareness. The information that it presents is not only needed for the general population (in terms of prevention) but for the cancer survivor population as well.
This nonprofits society work really hard. they help men come to an understanding with cancer in a serious but relaxing way . They have traveled as far as England to take part in awareness and support.
They help many recently dianosed patients with answers to their questions when it is most needed, and provide a guiding light in their most troubled time.
My son died from Testicular Cancer at 37. The Testicular Cancer Society raises awareness of this disease and tells all men to self exam.
I wrote to Mike letting him know we were having a Golf Tournament in memory of a friend who passed away due to complications from testicular cancer, simply asking for some pamphlets to be made avaialable to our attendees. Mike sent those pamphlets, along with beer koozies and self exam cards to every participant! He also advertised the tournament on his website. Mike went above and beyond what we asked for and we can't wait to continue working with him and the Testicular Cancer Society!
