The campaign began when he discovered a few men very dear to him were diagnosed with prostate cancer, and were in serious jeopardy of losing their lives. When he asked why, they responded, “we never got tested.” . “If a finger up my rectum will aid in decreasing the likelihood of my dying from a horrible disease, well I’m ready to take it. Well, up to the first knuckle.”, he jokes.” This eye-opener sent him on a crusade to develop an initiative that would begin making men and women aware of the need for annual screenings. This disease, which is diagnosed in a man every 90 seconds, is something that must be stopped… one laugh at a time.

The event kicks off September 1st of every year, which is Prostate Cancer Awareness month, where he travels all around the country and overseas, spreading this important message.
