Oddballs Assemblies at Ysgol Eirias

Ysgol Eirias welcomed Morgan Gregson, an Ambassador for the Oddballs Foundation, into school before Easter.

Morgan delivered Assemblies for all Year 11 and Year 12 students to raise awareness about testicular cancer and to pass on an important message for young men to check themselves for 'lumps and bumps'.

The Oddballs foundation works with leading figures in the World of sport, such as Shane Williams, Dame Kelly Holmes and Alan Shearer to pass on the word about this issue for young men and also the families that support them. Testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer in men between the ages of 15-49 and 2,300 cases are diagnosed in the UK every year. However, if treated early, the success rate of treatment is very high.
