A MESSAGE FROM Susan and Mark Bates FOUNDERS OF Balls To Cancer
Balls To Cancer is a registered charity set up to help raise awareness and educate on all male cancers. Our online campaign #FumbleFriday reminds and advises men on how and what to check themselves for on the most common male cancers. Early detection vastly improves survival rates, so we hope to take away the taboo many feel when discussing their testicles.
We have recently set up #MakingMemories where we send cancer hit families on a luxury caravan holiday (free of charge) to allow them a well deserved break. The response to this has been so fantastic we will hopefully extend this across the country. As part of this idea we have also funded some terminal patients with a wish list, one was simply a meal out with his sister just weeks before he sadly died.
The charity also wanted to try and improve the treatment for children going through cancer and came up with #SuperHeroChemo – these are boxes designed in a hero theme that cover the IV bags, containing the chemo, giving the child the thought their treatment is super powers. It’s a tough time for all involved so anything that can relieve this has to be positive.
Balls To Cancer is about making a difference and to do this we need your help. We have various events throughout the year that you could get involved in, or we would love you to set up your own.
