Story

Edinburgh University Men's Hockey Club have created this page because we want to help It's in the Bag make a difference. We're going to be trying to grow moustaches this November! It's not going to be easy for some of us either...

Having been mightily impressed by It's in the Bag's work in raising awareness of Testicular Cancer, we have been inspired to support them for a FIFTH year running.

We've set an ambitious target and are sure we can meet it, and hopefully surpass it! Please help us at EUMHC by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about It's in the Bag, the greater their impact in raising awareness particularly amongst young men, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means so much.

About the charity

It's in the Bag

Verified by JustGiving

RCN 1163735
It’s in the Bag is run by a group of survivors with support from specialist NHS staff and provide hands-on support for men with testicular cancer (germ cell) in the South-West. We have three simple aims: Support: Being diagnosed with testicular cancer and going through treatment is a huge challenge – physically, mentally and emotionally. We provide a range of activities and initiatives to help men through this tough time. Awareness: We teach men the importance of checking their balls regularly and taking any issues straight to their GP. Spreading this knowledge promotes earlier diagnosis, which often means simpler, more effective treatment and better chances of a cure. Survival: With UK cure rates for testicular cancer running above 98%, we focus on survival helping guys tackle the emotional and practical impact of cancer, both during treatment and into their lives after.
