MAKING A DIFFERENCE: We’re supporting a testicular cancer charity to mark International Men’s Day
Our husbands, boyfriends, dads, uncles and grandads mean the world to us and so to mark International Men’s Day this month, we’ve pledged our support to a testicular cancer charity.
We are very proud to share the messages of DT38 Foundation to raise awareness of the disease, following the death of professional footballer Dylan Tombides at the age of just 20.
Did you know? Testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer in men aged under 35.
There have even been cases of boys as young as six month’s old contracting the disease and that is why it is so important that men, boys and parents of small children learn about self checking.
This is where DT38 comes in.
The charity was set up in 2015 by the family of the late West Ham United player Dylan Tombides and is an official charity partner of the Premier League football club.
DT38 raises awareness online and at events, educates young people in schools about the importance of wellbeing and arranges free testicular cancer scans at various times with medical professionals.
So, let’s not live in ignorance and put our mens’ health at risk, let’s spread the word and get our guys to check their testicles once a month.
It quick and easy to and it really could save their life.
