What is Kilted to Kick Cancer you ask?
GET KILTED – GET CHECKED!
That is not only our motto, but our rally cry!
September is Prostate Cancer Awareness month. For the entire month of September we will be wearing kilts. Not just occasionally or when we feel like it. All. Month. Long. Unless we’re on duty (many members are Law Enforcement, Fire or EMS officers), we’re wearing kilts.
You mean aside from being the most comfortable garment ever invented by man? I have never been asked why I am wearing a pink T-shirt. I have never had the desire to ask a man with a mustache why he has it. When a man walks into a room wearing a kilt, everyone has the same question…what’s he got on under there? A kilt demands attention anywhere it goes and we use that attention to start an awkward conversation with men of a certain age. Most often it is their wives that approach us and get the info, no surprises there. Kilts attract the ladies.
To join Kilted to Kick Cancer is simple:
Kilt up, get the facts, go about your business.
No walk-a-thons, no branded shampoos, just a man, a kilt and a message…multiplied 10,000 times. 1 man in 7 will be diagnosed with PC in their lifetime. 1 in 36 will be killed by it. Early recognition and treatment, often with simple changes to diet and exercise, can drastically improve survivability from 28% to 100% in your lifetime. If you’re age 40 and of African American descent or in a family with a history of PC, talk to your doctor about a PSA blood test. If you’re 50 talk to your doctor about your PSA and digital exam. Knowing your risks could save your life.
