“Beards for the Boys” Cancer Awareness Campaign
Have you been looking for a good excuse to grow your beard? You just found one!
Cancer Support Community is partnering with Today’s Healthy Man in order to raise funds and spread awareness of testicular cancer. “Beards For The Boys” is a fun and educational awareness campaign that will positively impact the lives of many diagnosed with, not just testicular cancer, but all types cancer.
Roughly 8, 340 new cases of testicular cancer will be diagnosed each year. Although it can develop at any age, almost half of all cases are in men between the ages of 20 and 34. However, testicular cancer can be treated and usually cured, especially when it’s found early. Significant progress has been made with treatment over the past couple years, but we still have a ways to go. To learn more about testicular cancer click here.
