What We Do
As a charity we aim to inform, educate and potentially help save lives by offering information of what to look out for, self-diagnosis techniques to detect the earliest signs and symptoms of testicular cancer, and what you should do to act upon them. Nobody should have to go through this alone, so please contribute where you can in helping us raise awareness of this debilitating disease.
We plan to work closely with local schools, gym centres and football/rugby clubs to raise awareness of testicular cancer making sure the correct checks and information is provided. An e-mail and text message reminder service is available to help increase the checks each month, so that the chance of early detection increases and saves lives.
What difference do we make?
More and more young men are becoming more aware of testicular cancer and their health.
Allows us to encourage more young men to check themselves and visit a Dr if they think there is something wrong – this could prevent more serious cases or even death.
Provide financial support to sufferers of Testicular Cancer which relieves stress and worry.
The main aim of BaggyTrousersUK is to promote regular checks and fundraise through donations and corporate sponsorship, in order to provide engaging awareness sessions and support for young men about testicular cancer. Our key services are to visit schools, colleges, youth groups and events to raise awareness and educate young men about testicular cancer, how to check for testicular cancer, how to spot the signs and symptoms, so that they can get treatment sooner rather than later. We also provide support to those who have been diagnosed with testicular cancer, during and after treatment.
BaggyTrousersUK was formed in 2014 after Jack Broadley overcame his battle with testicular cancer. Jack decided to take on this challenge to embark on a journey that would inspire him to commit his future to helping people suffering from the illness that he’d once had. He felt an inherent urge to make a difference in the lives of people suffering from testicular cancer and that, with the charity being run by a survivor, he could get the message across to all young adults by the telling of his experience.
