In addition to the large donations, as part of a campaign partnership to say #PantsToCancer, we have also been raising money through sales of a new range of underwear in the red, blue and black of Teenage Cancer Trust’s logo.
Each day seven young people aged 13-24 are diagnosed with cancer in the UK and Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to providing specialist nursing and care to them.
The donations from Bawbags will help fund Teenage Cancer Trust’s four specialist units across Scotland that offer age-appropriate care for teenagers and young adults. Six Clinical TYA Cancer Nurse Specialists working alongside NHS Scotland staff are also based within local hospitals, providing access to care for young people who previously did not have access to any specialist support.
Every pair of men’s Bawbags boxers now includes a self-check guide highlighting the simple diagnostic tests that wearers can do to check for the signs of testicular cancer.
