Swimming their nuts off!

004

Just imagine it is your son!

January 2006

I was a teacher when I had testicular cancer in 1995. Since then I explained the risk of testicular cancer every year in class to make the students aware. A former student of mine invited me for coffee in 2006 and said to me: “Because you made us aware I went to the doc in time. I've got testicular cancer too. I'm 16 and you saved my life. Thank you!” Just imagine this is your son!
(Torsten - this is the reason I've started Love your Nuts. I realised by just talking balls I'm saving lives)

Your Goodie bag can save a life!

25 November 2017

These ballsy guys will take up the challenge to swim 7.5 km each in the ice cold atlantic waters to raise awareness for testicular cancer and funds for educational goodie bags.

The distance from Robben Island to Big Bay is ±7.5 km. The aim is to raise R1 per meter. This will be ±38 goodie bags/swimmer (or hopefully more) that we can distribute at schools.

Love your Nuts Goodie bags

How your R 200 (value of one bag) or part thereof can save a life:
Every student receives a branded goodie bag with the following content: information on cancer in general, flyer on how to check your nuts, peak cap, stress balls (the students must give them to their dads because they are at risk too).

We visit schools to educate the students in a humorous way about the risks of cancer and that early detection is lifesaving. The visit includes our cancer school programme with the stage play "Nuts about you!" (optional).
