A Nuts & Bolts Guide is:
a guy who's had testicular cancer before
a stand-up volunteer who's been trained by us
someone who knows how to listen and be supportive
Check out their profiles and see what they're about.
Nuts & Bolts guides are awesome guys, but they aren't a substitute for your doctor or care team. So, keep in mind that guides:
do not make any decisions for you (like which treatment to have)
do not give you medical advice
do not act like your doctor
Otherwise, they've got you covered.
Ben was looking for ways to use his testicular cancer experience to give back to others. Listen to him chat about why becoming a guide was important to him.
"Just to be able to share that experience with someone understanding exactly what you went through, is really helpful." Listen to Adam share how he gives back to the community, by being a guide.
We’re looking for guys willing to lead the charge. You don’t have to be a doctor or therapist – just be you. You can make all the difference in another guy’s life, just by listening, sharing and being there for the tough times.
