Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Testicular cancer is the #1 cancer in males ages 15 \– 34. And every hour, another one of those young men is diagnosed.\\n\\nThe good news is that testicular cancer is highly survivable if detected early. The bad news is that most young men don\’t know the warning signs and the value of a simple monthly self-exam.\\n\\nThat\’s where the Testicular Cancer Foundation\'s goals come in. We are a highly focused, 501(c)(3) organization. We work throughout the country fulfilling our mission to educate young men and their families about this disease. We want to be able to continue our mission, but at the same time, we want to make sure there are zero deaths from a disease that can be staged earlier rather than later. \\n\\nThe benefits of our work will have an impact for generations to come.

By spreading this message, we not only are helping increase the odds of early detection, we\’re also showing young men that it\’s important to take care of their bodies and be advocates for their own health.

Again, In our first few years of operation, we have successfully migrated from start-up mode to phase one of our strategic plan which has allowed us to hire an executive director and expand our outreach services to all 50 states. Our national speakers\’ bureau, comprised of testicular cancer survivors, allows us to provide personal, passionate services throughout the country. We have successfully gained the attention of national media and are building partnerships with key communities \– medical, parenting, and educational.

So far our organization has reached all 50 states with education material and while that seems big we have our eyes set on every single 15-20 year old male learning from TCF the importance of self exams!
