CHECK PLEASE, PLEASE CHECK—-MY NEW INITIATIVE

Yesterday I encouraged male readers of this blog to be certain to have a Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) test and every female reader to have tests relative to female cancer.

Today I am beginning a new initiative—with you. As my partners.

THE GOAL:

I want to get as many of my readers and followers tested for cancer as possible.

THE INITIATIVE:

If you have had a male or female cancer test in the past six months or complete such a test from now until the first day of the World Series (October 27, 2015) I will donate $10 to either TGen (Translational Genomics Research Institute) or to Stand Up 2 Cancer for the first 300 people tested who respond.

TGen is a World Class-and I do mean World Class-research institute working tirelessly on cancer research. Stand Up 2 Cancer is doing the same and is tremendously effective.

REGISTRATION:

Beginning right now, if you have been checked for cancer in the last six months let me know on twitter (@BerniePleskoff.) If you complete a test between now and October 27, 2015, let me know on twitter when the test is complete.

Simply go to @BerniePleskoff and say, “I was checked, send a check.” Include where you want the donation to go–either TGen or Stand Up 2 Cancer.

On October 28, 2015 I will send a check to TGen and a check to Stand Up 2 Cancer that equates to $10 each for the first 300 people that have been tested and registered on my twitter account.

WHY GET TESTED?
You will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing the results of the test. If something is wrong, your doctor can proceed. Early detection is the key.

We can do this. Together. We can take the few minutes necessary to get checked out. Check, please. Please check.

And let me know @BerniePleskoff when you get checked out.

Thanks.
