Ambulance Driver has challenged his fellow bloggers to raise money and awareness of testicular and prostate cancer. And in typical AD fashion he picked a different way to do it.
So, here’s me in a kilt.
There’s some kind of contest going on, with prizes for the blogger that gets the most donations but that doesn’t really matter. The important thing is to get your junk and your prostate checked.
Prostate Cancer Facts:
About 240,890 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in 2011.
About 33,720 men will die of prostate cancer in 2011.
About 1 man in 6 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.
More than 2 million men in the United States who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point are still alive today.
Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer.
About 1 man in 36 will die of prostate cancer.
Testicular Cancer Facts:
It most often affects men between ages 20 and 39.
It affects 8,000 men a year, and kills 390 of them.
It is the most common form of cancer in men ages 15-34.
95% of cases can be cured if detected early.
Early detection is the key so man up and get that exam.

You have been warned.
