Dear medical practitioners,

I would like to introduce to you the “MOT for Men” project, which is based on my own experience from 2010.

Even when I was young I dreamt about winning the Olympics in badminton. I won junior tournaments, became the champion of the Czech Republic, and a representative in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. And I continued to dream. I was living a dream and my life could not have been better. But then, suddenly I found myself standing in the doctor’s office listening to him say, “Mr. Koukal, you don’t seem to understand. You’re not going to any training. You have a malignant tumor in your testicle and we have to operate today. Then you’ll need chemotherapy.” I was 24 years old.

Over time, I found out that there are more men like me – young, and at first sight strong and healthy, who have suddenly been struck by a serious illness. I was shocked when I realized what a big taboo male health is in our society.

Early detection, successful treatment, faith, willpower, the support of those close to me and hard training all brought me back to a normal life and back to sports. Eventually I competed in the Olympics in London, where I had the honor to carry the Olympic Flag at the opening ceremony. I finished my career a few months ago at my third Olympics, which took place in Rio de Janeiro. During those years, I received hundreds of various reactions and stories. Based on those stories, I realized that my life experience can be motivating in a way for some men and can make them think about their approach to their body, health and prevention itself.

I believe that with the “MOT for Men” project I can inspire many men to go to for a preventative medical checkup in time. Involving you, the General Practitioners, is however crucial for the success of this project; therefore I am asking for your help. Become a member of our MOT CLUB, and join us inchanging men’s way of thinking and help save their lives!

Provide us with your contact information (it will not be share with a third party) and we will contact you within a couple of days.

Thank you very much for your time.

Sincerely yours,
Petr Koukal
