Community Cannabis Connection
Through education and active engagement with local leaders, community organizations, and other businesses we are working to dispel the myths created by the failed war on drugs.
April is Testicular Cancer Awareness Month. We will be highlighting organizations that are helping people dealing with this cancer and the important role that cannabis can play in their treatment.
A Joint Effort Beginning in April
The rate of testicular cancer has been increasing in the United States and many other countries. The increase is mostly in seminomas. Experts have not been able to find reasons for this increase. Lately, the rate of increase has slowed.
Testicular cancer is not uncommon; a man’s lifetime chance of developing testicular cancer is about 1 in 270. Because treatment is so successful, the risk of dying from this cancer is very low: about 1 in 5,000.
Testicular cancer is highly curable when detected early, and 95% of patients with testicular cancer are alive after a five-year period. However, about half of men with testicular cancer do not seek treatment until the cancer has spread beyond the testicles to other locations in the body.
Let’s come together and help heal our world through Community, Cannabis, Connection.
