This disease is 95 – 99% curable when diagnosed and treated in its earliest stages. Men 40 years or older who are diagnosed with the disease have twice the risk of dying of the disease than men under 40.

 

The Foundation was established in memory of Sean Kimerling, the Emmy Award-winning anchor of PIX11 sports and pre-game announcer for the New York Mets. Sean died from testicular cancer on September 9, 2003. He was only 37. The Foundation was formed to raise awareness of testicular cancer and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment.

 

“Sean fought a brief, intense battle with cancer. He was unaware of his cancer until very late when severe back pain sent him to the doctor. He was a young, healthy, vibrant man, intelligent and kind … his life was cut short in its prime.This is a great opportunity to meet and play with your sports hero, re-connect with friends, network with business contacts and help us fight this disease”, said Noah Kimerling Foundation President and Founder.

New York, NY …. Many well-known sports, TV, and Radio personalities will be joining with the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation at the 7th Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament and Dinner, August 9, 2010 at Muttontown Country Club in East Norwich, NY. Presented by PIX 11, the event features a day of golf, dinner, and live entertainment.

The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation will honor NY METS Hall of Famer, Ed Kranepool. Many sports legends, TV and Radio personalities including Rick Ackerman Ottis Anderson, Stephen Baker, Chad Cascadden, Rich Caster, Rick Cerrone, Ron Darling, Bruce Harper, Curtis McGriff, Carl Nelson, Sam Rosen, Darryl Strawberry, Gus Williams, and Perry Williams are scheduled to attend. Master of Ceremonies and WABC-TV meteorologist Bill Evans will host the awards dinner.

Every hour of every day in the United States one young man will be diagnosed with testicular cancer… If he hears “you have testicular cancer”, he needs to hear “we caught it early”. TC is the most common cancer among young men between the ages of 15 and 40, and has one of the highest cure rates of all cancers. If detected and treated early, the survival rate is over 95 percent. This year in the United States, almost 8400 young men will be diagnosed with the disease.

The Foundation was established in memory of Sean Kimerling, the Emmy Award-winning anchor of WB11 sports and pre-game announcer for the New York Mets. Sean died from testicular cancer on September 9, 2003. He was only 37. Too often, young men, like Sean, are not aware they have TC until it has spread throughout their body, greatly complicating treatment and their chances of survival.

It is critical the message on the importance of self-examination continues to be heard. To further its mission, SKTCF recently launched new innovative programs continuing to spread the message on the importance of early detection and self-examination. “Sean fought a brief, intense battle with cancer. He was unaware of his cancer until very late when severe back pain sent him to the doctor. He was a young, healthy, vibrant man, intelligent and kind … his life was cut short in its prime”, said Noah Kimerling Foundation President and Founder.

If he hears “you have testicular cancer”, he needs to hear “we caught it early”.

SKTCF is excited to announce its search for an Executive Director
