What we do with the funds you've raised:

LYN Goodie bag – a bag that can save a child’s life

Testicular cancer is most common between 15 and 40 and we target this age group.
We visit schools to educate the students in a humorous way about the risks of cancer and that early detection is lifesaving. We launch the cancer school programme with a educational/motivational talk by a survivor at the school.
Every student receives a branded goodie bag with the following content:

  • information on cancer in general,
  • flyer on how to check your nuts,
  • information on cancer for men and women,
  • a peak cap,
  • stress balls (the students must give them to their dads because they are at risk too).
  • If the goodie bag is sponsored by a company they can add their advertising material too.

A humorous and lifesaving way to reach the community through their connection to a school. One goodie bag is likely to reach more than 7 people because of the current household situation in South Africa.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Thanks for your fantesticle support!
Testicular cancer survivor, CEO & Founder
