A few years ago, I organized a charity event for American Cancer Society to raise awareness for male cancers, in particular, testicular cancer. I called the event “Jungle of Jewels” and held it at Fassler Hall by organizing a concert. We raised over $1000 for American Cancer Society. I did this event mainly because you don’t hear much about male-only cancers. You have lots of awareness for woman cancer like Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Back in 2007, I got diagnosed with testicular cancer and had to go through 6 weeks of chemotherapy treatments. I’m happy to say that I’ve been cancer free for over 10 years now.
I would love to do another fundraiser to raise awareness for testicular cancer. As of right now, doctors and scientists are researching on how to treat it and prevent it.
