PIX11 is helping to raise awareness about a common form of cancer that generally affects men ages 15 to 35.
Back in 2003, our very own PIX11 Sports Anchor Sean Kimerling lost his battle with testicular cancer at the age of 37. Since his death, his family has been raising awareness through the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation. Sean's father, Noah Kimerling will be here to talk about the foundation and the 8th Annual Celebrity Goft Tournament & Dinner taking place Thursday, August 4th.
In continuing our coverage in bringing awareness about testicular cancer, we also sat down with Eric Schmidt and Joseph Capizzi -- two survivors of this cancer who both share inspirational stories of hope and survival.
Dr. Aaron Katz, Professor of Clinical Urology at Columbia University was also here to talk about sign, symptoms, treatments and self examination of testicular cancer.
