The purpose of the Testicular Cancer Foundation (Team Single Jingles) is simple: we provide awareness, education, and support to young men and their families about this disease. We educate them how to do a simple monthly self-exam to detect for early signs of testicular cancer.
By teaching young men about their body, we not only increase the likelihood of early detection of testicular cancer – we also are teaching them about the importance of taking care of their bodies and being an advocate for their own health.
