  • Sean Kimerling Foundation

    The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of testicular cancer and the need for regular self-examination. The Foundation was established in memory of the Emmy award-winning anchor of WB11 sports and pre-game announcer for the Mets.

    Their web site offers a good brochure with information resources and self-examination instructions.

    The Sean Kimerling Foundation has several new resources available now or coming soon. Check them out!
    I'm especially excited to see that last one when it becomes available in the next few months! Here are a few more details from their website.
    In partnership with Grigon Communications Inc, the foundation is launching a self-contained grassroots advocacy and communications program online through its website. The resource kit includes multimedia and interactive presentations. Community leaders, TC survivors, health services professionals, and other activists are provided with the means to deliver testicular health discussions to high school classes, work groups and other venues where are appropriate. Also included are training materials targeting discussions with medical and health services professionals.

        Thanks Scott for the foundation information. I ordered over 200 of the shower cards and received them yesterday. My friend is going to ask the High School PE teacher if they can pass them out. Her son is 15 so she will definitely be passing the shower card to him.
