The United Kingdom's Male Cancer Awareness campaign is taking testicular cancer awareness to new heights — literally! Working with Irish actor Chris O'Dowd, the organization hopes to raise money, not to mention eyebrows, to construct a big, "ballsy" hot air balloon to float over London.

"Why, I hear you ask, are we going through all this trouble? Well, it's a hot air balloon in the shape of a giant scrotum. What other reason do you need?" O'Dowd says in the campaign's promotional video.

Radical Procedure to Cure Bone Cancer
In 2011, then 10-year-old Bailey underwent a medical examination after experiencing a prolonged period of unexplained knee pain. An X-ray revealed that Bailey had a femoral bone tumor.

"The doctor came in and gave us news that no parent ever wants or imagines hearing," Bailey's mother Tiffany says. "She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, which is a rare and aggressive form of bone cancer. Our biggest fear after hearing the diagnosis was that she would die."

Bailey was given three options for treating her cancer: replacing her knee and femur, amputating her leg, or undergoing rotationplasty — a complex procedure that involves amputating the cancerous portion of the leg and reattaching the foot backwards to the thigh, so the ankle can serve as the new knee joint.

"I knew, right when I heard, [that] I wanted rotationplasty," Bailey says.

See how rotationplasty gave Bailey a second chance at life.
