THE STORY:

TESTICULAR CANCER - Testicular cancer is the leading cancer in males ages 15-35. READ THAT SENTENCE AGAIN......15 TO 35! How many males in that age range that you know, are currently doing monthly self exams? I know I wasn't.

When I was 39, I stepped out of the shower and thought I felt something not quite right when drying off. I told myself that I was being foolish and ignored it. Then, a month later, one of my testicles became tender and painful to the touch. I was just a few months shy of my 40th birthday and I had Stage Two Testicular Cancer.

Had I gone to the doctor on that first day that something seemed wrong, my treatment would have been brief and simple. Instead, I underwent two surgeries and an aggressive series of cheomtherapy treatments.

BUT NO ONE HAD TOLD ME - I had not read about TC....I didn't know about the need for self exams. Certainly at fifteen, I thought I was invincible.

The Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation was founded to raise awareness about the need for early detection. Discovered at its early states, TC is 95% survivable.

THAT is what makes it so important to educate males who are fifteen or over. This disease can be beat...and others don't have to go through what I did...IF they know what to look for and IF they do monthly self exams.

I am asking every one of my friends; if you have a husband, a boyfriend, a son, a nephew or grandson...fifteen or over, donate to this effort to raise awareness. No matter what you can afford; $25, $50 or $100....this is a disease that can be beaten, but only if we get the word out. Don't let a loved one go through what I did...just because they didn't know!

This drive is taking place during the month of November. I will be growing a beard for awareness and will update my picture weekly.  I have set a stretch goal of $5,000....I would love to surpass it....DONATE TODAY and help the Testicular Cancer Awareness Foundation to get the word out...AND make sure every male you know, is doing monthly self exams!
