Did you know....

The Facts
Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in America, affecting 1 in 6 men.
The older you are, the more likely you are to be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
A man with a father or brother who developed prostate cancer is twice as likely to develop the disease.
For men in the U.S., the risk of developing prostate cancer is 17%.
Prostate and testicular cancers kill just as many men as breast cancer kills women, yet breast cancer receives 50 times more money for research than prostate cancer.

The Challenge
September is Prostate Cancer Awareness month. For the entire month of September my goal is to wear a kilt every day that I'm not in uniform or required to dress in a certain manner. There are a bunch of bloggers who are participating in this challenge. Our goal is raise funds for prostate and testicular cancer research.

The Fundraising
Make with the clicky and go here - www.pcf.org/kilted4
That is my unique link for donations for the Prostate Cancer Foundation
When my kilt comes in, there will be pics. In the mean time visit the Kilted to Kick Cancer website  for more information.

The world can see boobies. Everyone can see the horrible disfigurment of radical mastectomies when one wears a revealing shirt.
Out of sight, out of mind, that's the societal way.
Can't see the prostatectomies or radical inguinal orchiectomies, unless someone is looking for it. Well, unless you lift your kilt...

There will be no lifting of the kilt!
