About the College Advisory Panel
The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation’s College Advisory Panel (CAP) is a nationwide collaboration of college students, faculty, and staff dedicated to raising Awareness, providing Answers and promoting Action in the fight against testicular cancer (TC). Members collaborate to drive the foundation’s college agenda, coordinate awareness activities and organize fundraising events in their schools. Most importantly, CAP members show the world that young people care and can make a difference in the fight against TC, the most common cancer in college age men.

About the Foundation
The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation (SKTCF) is dedicated to raising Awareness of TC and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment, providing Answers, and promoting Action in the fight against TC. The foundation was formed in 2003 in memory of Sean Kimerling, the Emmy Award winning PIX11 sportscaster and pre-game announcer for the NY Mets. Sean died at the age of 37 from TC.  Headquartered in New York City, we have strong ties to sports teams and media. A registered 501(c)(3) public charity, we are nationally recognized as a key resource in the fight against TC.

Testicular Cancer
TC is the most common cancer in men 15 – 40 years old, and incidence rates have been steadily increasing for decades. It is highly treatable—in fact, 99% curable—when found and treated at its earliest stages. In the case of TC, awareness truly is the cure. Our mission is to increase rates of early detection and treatment, save lives, and support men newly diagnosed with TC.

What Is Required?
CAP Members are asked to organize (at minimum) one annual awareness & fundraising activity within their school, to participate in quarterly CAP conference calls, and to recruit others to join the fight against TC.

How Do I Get Involved?
We are looking for young people who are committed to the fight against TC. If you are a survivor, a caregiver, a friend or family member, or just interested in getting involved – as long as you have the passion to raise Awareness, provide Answers and promote Action, we want you on our team!

Please feel free to reach out directly to me with any questions, I’d be happy to discuss. I look forward to working with you to prove the impact college students can make, and to create a world where no man dies from TC.

Sincerely,
