Everyman - Funding research to cross out male cancer
Everyman is the UK's leading male cancer campaign
Jason Cundy was diagnosed with testicular cancer at the height of his football career in 1997."As I sat watching TV one night, I put my hand down my trousers to itch myself (like many men do!) and found that one of my testicles was a lot larger than normal. I hadn't noticed it before and it seemed to have come on quite suddenly. I showed the club doctor at Ipswich Town FC, was given a scan and within 48 hours I was undergoing surgery to have my testicle removed and underwent a course of chemotherapy.
"Luckily I had caught the cancer early enough, and despite it returning a few years later, I have now made a full recovery and my wife Lizzie and I also went on to have our second son, who was conceived naturally.
"Having cancer did change my outlook on life. I tend to be a more positive person and I am keen to help others around me more than before. That's why I decided to become a patron of Everyman.
I wanted to give something back and decided to become a patron of The Everyman Campaign after I suffered from testicular cancer.
