Army soldier Fred Simons is "Kilted to Kick Cancer," trading in his camouflage for something a bit airier.
After spending eight months risking his life in Afghanistan, Simons is still working to save the lives of others. All month long he will be rocking his kilt to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer prevention. A campaign that started in the blogosphere.
An alarming one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. An even scarier statistic is that one in 36 men will die from it. To put that into perspective, imagine the male student population at UW-Stevens Point. With approximately 4,452 male students, 123 of those male students run the risk of dying from prostate cancer.
