Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer FOundation
Self Exam Awareness Shower Cards
Testicular Cancer is the most common cancer in boys and men 15-40. The good news is that with early detection, testicular cancer is up to 99% curable. Regular self-examination of the testicles should be as routine with boys and men as breast self-exams are for women. Hence, one of our main programs is Check'Em Shower Cards that can be hung in the shower for regular self examinations and knowledge of symptoms to look for so that testicular cancer can be detected early.
SKTCF has and will continue to donate Shower Cards to individuals, schools, health clinics and other institutions around the country in hopes of reaching the young demographic that we need to educate.
SKTCF is proud to collaborate with UnitedHealthcare, the largest single health carrier in the United States, to fight testicular cancer. A recognized leader in the health and well-being industry, UnitedHealthcare’s support enables SKTCF to spread the message on the importance of early detection and self-examination in the fight against testicular cancer.
If you are interested in receiving shower cards please e-mail your request to Natalie Shivdat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
