At the Testicular Cancer Foundation, we come to work everyday because we want to save lives. We are a team of survivors, caregivers and advocates with a passion to increase education and awareness about the most common cancer in males ages 15-34…Testicular Cancer. Fighting a disease that affects a demographic that is young and feels invincible is an uphill battle, but we are taking it head on. Being the only full-time staffed testicular cancer group and leading provider of education materials in the country; it is our mission (and obligation) to ensure every male knows the warning signs of the disease, and how to perform a testicular self exam.
TCF founder, Matt Ferstler was diagnosed with testicular cancer at the age of 22. Frustrated that he didn’t know the warning signs, the importance of a testicular self exam, or that he was susceptible to this disease, Matt turned his frustration into action. In 2009, the Testicular Cancer Foundation was born and has since been a driving force in the men’s health and testicular cancer arena.
