I am carting this ridiculous ball round the UK and abroad, basically until the message gets out. You can keep up with my antics at www.androids.org.uk/tour.

I am attempting to raise sponsorship to take Cancer advocates to Ireland for a week of workshops in major towns prior to the 1st Global Cancer Conference in Dublin.
The testicle will also be seen on my occasional visits to London, as I will always take it to the capital.
I've been working on Testicular Cancer ever since in claimed both my testicles in 1988. I didn't even know Testicular Cancer existed! To say it was a massive shock and difficult to deal with is an understatement, because there was no such thing as support for this disease then.
In 1996, I wrote, "The Making of a Eunuch", an autobiographical website dealing with that experience. I began working with the US based Testicular Cancer Resource Center, the first online support group later that year. I am also associated with TC-Cancer.com and Checkemlads.com
Please consider a donation on my behalf to the Institute of Cancer Research's Everyman campaign. Facing the Facts, many, many people would not be alive, doing great work, if research into this disease was not being funded.
