"Ian's Story" is an effort to raise awareness of the most common cancer in young men - Testicular Cancer. It is curable if treated early.
Together We Will Win
Together We Will Win is a new book written by Ian's mom, Karen A. McWhirt, available in Paperback & Kindle at Amazon.com
Kirkus Discoveries Review describes the book as, "personable, relatable, and compelling... the most powerful kind of writing--- the kind that can save lives... A powerful, educational, cautionary tale."
Ian was appauled that so many people don't know about the most common cancer in young men his age... a cancer that was quickly taking his life
Ian was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer in November 2004, at the age of 19. He died 4 months later, due to the advanced stages of the cancer. Ian hoped to change the paradigm of silence about Testicular Cancer.
Please - talk about Testicular Cancer with the young men in your life! Don't let fear or embarrassment silence you - just bring the subject up. You may save someone's life.
Ian asked his Mom to continue teaching other young men about Testicular Cancer
There is no reason any young man should die from this disease. It is curable if treated early. Talk about it openly, to your sons, friends, students, and co-workers.
