A Month Without Pants

It's September, and that, of course, means it's time for me to go without pants for the next 30 days (OK, OK... the next 26 days, because it's already September 4th, but whatever).

That's right: Kilted to Kick Cancer fundraising is back in action!

Some facts about prostate cancer:

  • It affects as many men as breast cancer does women, but gets about 1/10th of the funding.
  • 1 in 36 men will die from prostate cancer this year. 
  • If two Boeing 757 jets filled with nothing but men crashed and killed everyone on board, once a week, every week for a year, that would almost match the number of deaths from prostate cancer.
  • Prostate cancer is the most common form of non-skin cancer among men.  

So, to try to improve those numbers, Kilted to Kick Cancer was formed.  The premise is simple: Wear your kilt every chance you can, and start talking with people about prostate cancer. 

And beg for donations so we can fund more research into preventing, diagnosing, and treating prostate cancer.

To that end, I humbly ask for your help: If you have a coin or two to spare, head over to Kilted to Kick Cancer Donation page and chip in what you can to Team JBRO.

And if you're a man over age 40, talk with your doctor about your prostate. 

Get Kilted, Get Checked!
