article imageMark the Underwear Guy on Facebook for testicular cancer

By KJ Mullins     Oct 6, 2010 in Health
Toronto - Starting today Mark will be on Facebook in his underwear as The Guy at Home in His Underwear. Mark will spend the next 25 days in his underwear to raise testicular cancer awareness and hopefully inspire people to donate to the cause.
Surviving testicular cancer Mark already knows that he is among the 900 Canadian men that will be affected by the disease each year. By spending 25 days in front of a camera live in his loft in downtown Toronto he is hoping others learn about the disease and donate. If he can get 25,000 people to 'Like' him on Facebook and last the 25 days, Stanfield's, Canada's Underwear Company, will donate $25,000 to the Canadian Cancer Society for testicular cancer awareness.
"As a testicular cancer survivor, it's important to me that young men are aware of the risks - especially because it can affect guys as young as 15," says Mark. "Hanging out at home in my underwear all day for one day sounds great, but doing it for 25 straight days is going to be a challenge. I'm hoping to bring some awareness to a worthy cause that affects men of all ages in Canada."

According to the Canadian Cancer Society, many young men may not realize that testicular cancer is the number one form of cancer they face.
"Stanfield's is proud to support Canadian men in every way we can - especially a cause that's so close to us and the people who wear our products," says Jon Stanfield, President, Stanfield's Canada.
