“Share a Pair, Win a Pair” to Help Tommy John Support Testicular Cancer Awareness

Mustache Trunks

Every October, we celebrate awareness of women’s health, by highlighting education and support of those with breast cancer.  November (or “Movember” as it has come to be known) is the month where we highlight men’s health, where men (and women) sport moustaches to also support awareness and education of diseases such as prostate and testicular cancer (my husband has previously shown his support for “Movember”, see the post here).  To ensure we continue this important conversation, underwear brand Tommy John has teamed up with the Testicular Cancer Foundation (TCF) to raise awareness and provide education through their #SupportYourBalls campaign.

I attended the #VIPink Brunch in May in support of breast and ovarian health (post here), so I was more than happy to help support Tommy John + TCF with their campaign.  Here are a few ways you can help bring awareness of testicular cancer throughout the month of November:

  • Tommy John will give 5% of all sales coming from their limited edition “Mustache and Ball” collection (pictured above and below) to TCF
  • Tommy John also will contribute $10 to TCF for each purchase made by new customers who were referred by someone else (also, if you refer a friend, they get a $20 credit; when your referral makes a purchase, you then get a $20 credit!)

Additionally, Tommy John will have an Instagram contest called “Share a pair, win a pair”.  The contest runs until November 30, 2015 to start sharing your pairs to win!


Here’s my entry below, directly from my Instagram account, @any2ndnow.  Thank you Tommy John for asking me to help bring awareness to men’s health, and to also support your wonderful campaign with the Testicular Cancer Foundation!


Give Thanks, With a Grateful Heart

Christmas Card 2013

The holiday season is always a wonderful time to give thanks for all the blessings you have.  I’m thankful every waking moment for a wonderful and loving family, from my immediate nuclear family to my extended family of friends and relatives, and also to my blogging and social media friends.  I’m blessed to be gainfully employed, which I wasn’t last year at this time.  I’m also blessed for myself and my family to be relatively healthy (although we do have history of diabetes and asthma).

Heather Thankful Blog Post 2013

Heather Von St. James is a mesothelioma cancer survivor, who was originally given only 15 months to live prior to her treatment.  She is now an 8 year survivor and has asked me and other bloggers to think about what we are thankful for, and to share her story to spread hope and awareness for others who are going through the same thing.  You can read her amazing story here.  Thank you Heather for reaching out to me, and I would like to wish you, your family, and everyone a wonderful Christmas!
