I am happy to promote this educational event on Cyprus44.


We would like to put some information on Cyprus 44 about the launch day of our second ‘Balls to Cancer’ testicular cancer awareness calendar launch day which is being held on on Sunday 27th September 2009 at the Pia Bella Hotel in Kyrenia between 12.00-18.00.

The inspiration for the calendar came after Av. Naomi Mehmet’s husband, Hakan Temizyurek, was diagnosed with testicular cancer in early 2008. After receiving treatment in Turkey and returning to Cyprus, Naomi and Hakan realised that there is very little information available in Cyprus about testicular cancer - very few men are aware of the early warning signs and how to check themselves - so they decided to take action to raise awareness.

This year’s calendar is, once again, being produced in association with the Cyprus Pumas Rugby Club whose players are the models in the calendar. Rugby is a central theme in the calendar because it is a sport which is popular amongst young men between the ages of 18-35 - the age group which is, statistically, most likely to be affected by testicular cancer. The players posed naked for the calendar, which features very tasteful, but slightly risqué, semi-nude black and white pictures, in order to help men to realise that testicular cancer is not a subject to be embarrassed or ashamed about. The calendar will, once again, provide important medical facts and advice for men about testicular cancer. However, the style of the 2010 calendar is very different to the 2009 calendar, with more sophisticated, sultry and subtle photos and many new faces.

Last year’s calendar raised around 10,000TL for the Help Those with Cancer Association (Tulips) and the Help Those with Cancer Association (Tulips) has reported an increase in the number of people contacting them who have been diagnosed with testicular cancer – many of whom had been suffering with symptoms for some time, but had been too embarrassed to discuss these before this campaign was launched. We hope that the 2010 calendar will be even more popular than the 2009 calendar and that the message about testicular cancer will continue to be passed on.

The launch day will be a fun day for all of the family and will include a ‘Pumas’ fashion show, being produced by the fabulous Marilyn Torris, dance shows, live music, face paining, bouncy castle, raffle, tombola, children’s games and much more. In addition, the calendar will be on sale at the launch day and the models who posed for the calendar will be available to autograph their photos! All proceeds raised on the day and all proceeds from the sale of the calendars will be donated to the Help Those with Cancer Association (Tulips).

If you didn't make it on Sunday and you'd like to buy a calender, they are on sale at bar15 in Alsancak.

An ideal Christmas gift, and you'll be donating for a very good cause.
