Jeff Ber, VP of Operations for Oneball Charitable Cancer Organization, is Working on a Study With Alberta Health Services and the University of Calgary

Jeff Ber at Oneball, Alberta Health Services, and the University of Calgary are working on a study to understand the impact of testicular cancer better.

​​​​​​Jeff Ber is the Vice President of Operations for Oneball Charitable Cancer Organization. The organization is working with Alberta Health Services and the University of Calgary to conduct a study to glean a better understanding of the social and emotional impact of testicular cancer. Testicular cancer affects young men, as well as their partners and families. Oneball recognizes that living with the challenges associated with testicular cancer are intensely private, and can be a difficult subject to discuss or share with others.

Oneball Charitable Cancer Organization, Alberta Health Services, and the University of Calgary have come together to conduct a study to understand the long-term impact of testicular cancer, and how participants health care team can learn from the experience and, ultimately, help future testicular cancer patients, their partners, and their family.

The factions are seeking participants between 18 and 45 years old that have been diagnosed with testicular cancer. Participants are required to speak and read in English. The study includes participants attending a one-and-a-half hour focus group alongside other testicular cancer patients and survivors. Participants will be asked to complete a short demographic questionnaire, as well as sharing thoughts and experiences with the group. Food and refreshments will be provided, and parking or transit costs will be covered. For more information on the study or to participate, please email tc.study@ucalgary.ca, or contact by phone at 403-955-7831.
