As part of testicular cancer awareness month in April Cooper’s held a charity dress down day in support of The OddBalls Foundation.
Testicular cancer is unusual compared with other cancers because it tends to affect younger men. Although it is relatively uncommon overall, testicular cancer is the most common type of cancer to affect men between the ages of 15 and 49 making it especially relevant to our workforce.
The OddBalls Foundation was set up in 2016 to raise awareness of Testicular Cancer. Through the Foundation they aim to make a difference to male health around the world. Testicular Cancer is around 95% curable so early diagnosis and regular checking is important. Their aim is to fit as many ‘check yourself’ guides into male toilets and changing rooms across the country. This will encourage males to check themselves regularly and in doing so detect any problems early.
These guides are now displayed in the men’s toilets at Ignis House.
We raised a fantastic £110.00, thank you to everyone who contributed.
