DUMBARTON FC has gone into partnership with Cahonas, who will be attending Saturday’s game against Albion Rovers with information relating to men’s health.
Representatives of the charity will hold an information session with our players, and will then visit Bar 72 before the match with resources for supporters on testicular cancer.
Cahonas strives to ensure the message on the condition is sent out as widely as possible and help detect at the earliest opportunity.
Paul McCaffery, Cahonas community engagement officer, said: “In April, to mark the launch of Testicular Cancer Awareness Month, Cahonas wanted sports clubs in Scotland, from grassroots level to professional, to join us in encouraging their members to check their balls for LIFE – Lumps, Irregularities, Firmness and Enlargement.
“We exist to educate males in Scotland on the importance of early detection, through regular self checking.
“We are on a mission to get testicular health on the agenda from an early age. We want testicular health to be talked about openly and candidly in every place of education in Scotland and for self checking to become part of every male’s monthly routine.
“Through our education and information on the signs and symptoms of testicular cancer we want to empower males in Scotland to be proactive about their own testicular health.
“Cahonas Scotland is committed to creating a Scotland where all cases of testicular cancer are diagnosed at the earliest stage possible, where treatment is more effective and survival rates higher.”
We look forward to having the charity’s representatives at the game on Saturday and thank them for their partnership.
