Susan co-founded the male cancer charity Balls to Cancer. Whilst working
tirelessly to support the work of making men aware of testicular cancer,
Susan also fosters children having cared for 20 over the past 6 years.
Through her fostering she helps local families and has an impact on all the
children. She founded the charity five years ago and it has since raised funds for
local hospitals, hospices and children’s hospital.
“She has worked above and beyond any expectation of the charity”
The Charity is undertaking a nationwide awareness campaign through the
media, social networks, leaflets and posters, to make both men and women
aware of dangers to cancer and to help men help themselves. 100% of funds
raised or donated goes to the charity. They are also funding an education
programme for teenagers to dispel the taboo of talking about testicular
cancer and asking for help. They are working in conjunction with the local authority.
Susan is committed to making men’s health issues a subject which should be
talked about and not a taboo. By taking a somewhat irreverent stance and
making it humorous she is getting people talking about it on social media
and in sport. Balls to Cancer uses football as one of its primary fundraising
events which helps to keep participants fit and healthy.
