It's In Your Jeans - Downriver Kickoff Event
Team Member: Joe Caruso
I was diagnosed with metastasized testicular cancer as a young man. It was quite a shock as I was a freshman attending CMU on four scholarships and dreaming of a bright future. Those dreams were dashed when I was told by top specialists at U of M hospital that no one had ever been cured of this metastasized disease. The year was 1978. I had just begun my sophomore year. The last thing I could imagine was being told that I was going to die of a disease for which there is no cure.
Well, the year is now 2016, and I'm helping my friend raise awareness in young men so we can catch and treat this early. (My story had a happy ending - let's help others have one too.)
Please consider a $10 donation to It's In Your Jeans and together we can raise awareness and join the fight against colorectal, prostate, and testicular cancers. Your donation will help us achieve our goal to educate, promote awareness and to offer financial assistance toward the preventative treatment against these diseases to the men in our community.
