When’s the last time you talked about testicular cancer?
OriginalBOS, a Southern California drink cooler and apparel manufacturer and brand, is challenging women to raise their voices in testicular cancer support this year to combat the shame and embarrassment associated with the disease.
The OriginalBOS Challenge offers a non-threatening and non-controversial way for women to open up a dialogue about the emotional and physical effects of testicular cancer and how women can foster a more universal testicular cancer support community. By joining The Challenge campaign at http://www.originalbos.com women are asked to fight testicular cancer by changing the course of national conversation of one of the most common diseases among young men.
“Facing testicular cancer can be overwhelming and embarrassing, and so many young men choose to fight it alone,” said OriginalBOS CEO Grant Vollmer. “If women dedicate just a little time to learning about testicular cancer and how important early detection is, we can get rid of some social stigma surrounding it and give men the support they need to feel confident in addressing it.”
Thousands of men are diagnosed each year with testicular cancer, which is most prevalent among men age 24 to 30. Despite being the most treatable form of cancer when treated in time, many young men ignore the signs of testicular cancer out of fear or a feeling of shame associated with the disease.
Founded in 2011, OriginalBOS began by manufacturing Balls of Steel, stainless steel whiskey chillers that benefit testicular cancer research at MD Anderson Center in Austin, Texas.
