The Awkward Conversation That Could Save Your Son's Life

Parenting is full of awkward moments which most of us would rather avoid. But if you're the parent of a son, there's one awkward conversation you must have. It's a candid talk about their testicles. And it could save their lives.

Testicular cancer is the number one cancer in young men ages 15 to 35. It's highly survivable if detected early. Unfortunately, most young men don't know the importance of doing a simple, monthly self-exam on their testicles to check for lumps or hardness. And they don't know when to tell their folks something might be wrong.

Your best strategy as a parent is to educate yourself. And to help make that awkward conversation just a little easier, go to Single Jingles Testicular Cancer Awareness. They'll send you easy-to-understand shower cards to share with your sons.
