Lexington Cancer Foundation and the Testicular Cancer Society

The Testicular Cancer Society awarded a 2012 grant from the Lexington Cancer Foundation

In November we had the pleasure of attending the Lexington Cancer Foundation's Eighth Annual Grants Award Ceremony Luncheon at the Governor's Mansion in Frankfurt, Kentucky. We were honored to have our attendance requested as we were selected as a 2012 Lexington Cancer Foundation Grant Recipient.

Our grant award is being used to produce the Mountain Survivors Radio Show on WMMT in Whitesburg, Kentucky. The show is produced and hosted by our great friend and testicular cancer survivor, Sam Neace. Mountain Survivors uses 15,000 watts to broadcast the stories of cancer survivors throughout much of eastern Kentucky and the surrounding Appalachia area. Kentucky has the highest incident rates of cancer in the U.S. and the outcomes in eastern Kentucky are worse compared to other areas. Mountain Survivors shares the voices of local survivor's stories in hopes of stimulating conversations that will lead to change.

We can't thank the Lexington Cancer Foundation enough for their support on such a project and we can't wait to show them the progress we have made. Since 2004, the Lexington Cancer Foundation has awarded and pledged over $8 million to cancer organizations and their fight against cancer.
