Raising Awareness for Testicular Cancer

Nathan MacMaster, former WHL Hockey Player and TWC staff member, took it upon himself during the month of “Movember” to raise $1000 for testicular cancer research. His efforts paid off as he was presented with a cheque for $500 by TWC Financial Controller Karen Hogge. Testicular cancer is an issue close to Nathan’s heart as it has impacted his loved ones in recent years. Nathan has also benefited greatly from his involvement in the TWC Athletics Program

Testicular cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in young men, and rates have doubled in the last 50 years. The Movember Foundation has been working to halve the number of deaths from testicular cancer by 2030, and Nathan is passionate about helping them attain this goal. 

Daniel Maceachern (left), Funding Coordinator at TWC, may be clean shaven is the picture, but this certainly was not the case last month. Daniel took it upon himself to grow the most impressive moustache in the office to show his support for a great cause. 

Nathan and Daniel have committed to grow ‘staches for many years to come in the month of “Movember”.  Thank you to everyone at TWC and in the community abroad who sent Nathan donations and helped to make his dream a reality. Movember was a great bonding experience for many of our staff and moved an issue largely ignored to the forefront of our minds. Let’s rally together next year and make testicular cancer research a priority in support of health and wellness. 

“I grew up a high profile athlete, in addiction I lost touch with sports and recreation. Together We Can has numerous recreational programs, including my personal favorite; ice hockey, to allow people to begin living a healthy lifestyle again. After 90 days here, for the first time in a long time, I look forward to tomorrow and what the future has to offer.”
