Hello, we're the oneball organization.
In 2009 a group of testicular cancer survivors and stand-up friends, family members, and every-day people joined forces with the common goal of giving testicular cancer a kick in the groin.

Facts and figure about testicular cancer
Stuff you should know about the numbers behind testicular cancer
- Testicular cancer incidence continues to increase at a rate that is now statistically significant (1.5% per year between 1996 and 2005).
- There is also a decline in testicular cancer mortality (2.4% per year between 1995 and 2004)
- Five-year relapse-free survival rates were highest in Canada for thyroid (98%) and testicular cancer (96%). What this means is that, within the first five years after diagnosis, a man’s risk of dying from testicular cancer is about 4%.
- For men with cancer that show no evidence of having spread beyond the testicles (Stage 1), the survival rate is about 99%.
- For men with cancer that has spread to the back of the abdomen in the lymph nodes (Stage 2), the survival rate is about 96% but depends on the size and number of tumors.
For patients with more widely spread cancer (e.g. to the lungs, liver, bones etc) (Stage 3), the survival rate is about 71%. At this stage, patients are divided into three categories depending on the sites affected and tumor markers (blood work).
- Good risk – five year survival = 94%
- Intermediate risk – five year survival = 83%
- Poor-risk – five year survival = 71%
