Testicular Cancer Awareness

Gags to Gifts is not just here to spread some laughter and humor through our nutty  products, but we are here also to raise awareness for Testicular Cancer. Even though April is Testicular Cancer Awareness month, awareness needs to be a constant year long endeavor. Testicular Cancer is the leading cancer among men ages 15-44 but when detected early, testicular cancer is over 95% curable. Early detection is important... so males, remember to check yourself at least once a month and everyone encourage your loved ones to do the same. Every hour a male is diagnosed and every day a life is lost to Testicular Cancer. Gags to gifts products are funny, but testicular cancer isn't and so let's take charge and spread the word about how a simple self exam can help save thousands of lives, maybe even your own!
