The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation Brings Awareness with a Twist
The Valentine’s Day Check
New York, NY - Every hour of every day one man in the United States is diagnosed with testicular cancer. It is not one of the cancers you hear people talking about. Why is that? It needs to be discussed, as men are needlessly dying from a disease that’s up to 99% curable when found early.
The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation would like to change that, with humor. Cancer may not be funny, but showing men how to properly "Check ‘Em” and making Testicular Cancer less taboo of a topic sure can be. We teamed up with a comedian on the rise, Jessimae Peluso and Ditch Films to help make "Be A Man. Self Exam" a household name with a new video called The Valentine’s Day Check https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiF8CT7FQG4
