For a lot of men, getting through treatment is just the start. After finishing surgery, chemotherapy or radiation, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed. Our Team understands. We’ve collected resources to help men handle the effects of testicular cancer:
Beers, Bro’s and Balls
Beers, Bro’s and Balls is a testicular cancer survivor’s happy hour sponsored by the Brady Urological Institute and Ulman Cancer Fund. One of the biggest challenges for testicular cancer survivors is a feeling of alienation, as most males going through this disease do not know any other survivors. The group offers a chance for survivors and their families to mix and mingle, share their stories, and ask questions of other survivors going through various stages of treatment and cure. Happy hours are held quarterly. Learn more.
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults is a local Maryland organization that works at a grassroots level to support, educate, connect and empower young adult cancer survivors. The Ulman Fund works closely with our testicular cancer survivors and supports our advocacy, awareness and social events, including Grab Life by the Balls screening events, charity sporting events and Beers, Bro’s and Balls survivorship happy hours.
