When it comes to the non-profit cancer support world that helps to support cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers, there's a lot of really great programs out there. But I haven't felt like there was any ONE program out there that really hit the ball out of the park specifically for testicular cancer fighters, so I created my own.
In the making for the past 9 months, I'm happy to finally announce a brand spanking new program that I've developed just for the Testicular Cancer community, the Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation Ambassadors program.
If you've just been diagnosed with testicular cancer and are scared out of your mind, TCAF Ambassadors can help educate you about your diagnosis and treatment options, find competent doctors who know how to treat the disease, and help you gain invaluable confidence and peace of mind in your treatment plan.
If you're lost and confused in the survivorship years after, still scared out of your mind at every follow-up scan and appointment, or suffering from depression or posttraumatic stress and unable to find your way forward, you're never alone, because TCAF Ambassadors have been there too, and can help you find your way.
Testicular Cancer is the #1 form of cancer in men ages 15 to 44, internationally, yet almost no one talks about this disease. If you're looking for a way to give back and want to to help raise public awareness about testicular cancer by speaking in schools, public health fairs, and other such events, you can do that through the TCAF Ambassadors program also, and you could help save lives by the awareness that you raise.
Need Support? You don't have to go too far. Join the private Testicular Cancer Ambassadors Facebook group, where you can quickly connect with others in the same boat and a team of over a dozen TCAF Ambassadors, where you'll be able to find all of the support, guidance, inspiration, and motivation that you need to find your way through such a dark period of life.
Please join us! This is going to be a great program that I hope will make a big difference for a lot of people. I've been working on this program for a long, long time, and there's still so much to do but I'm happy to finally be taking the wraps off of it, and taking on this new program director role for TCAF. A huge thank you to the over dozen people that have volunteered to be launch Ambassadors and group moderators for TCAF, with many more to follow. :)
Let's all have a great Testicular Cancer Awareness Month!
Director, Ambassadors Program
