New York, NY …. Scott Schoeneweis and Rusty Staub of the NY Mets, Betty Ellen Berlamino and Mary Murphy of CW11, and many other well known sports, TV and Radio personalities will be joining with the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation for a great day of golf, dinner, and live jazz.
DARRYL STRAWBERRY, BUD HARRELSON , ROD GILBERT will be participating
The 5th Annual Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation Celebrity Golf Tournament and Dinner will be held August 4, 2008 at Bethpage Red, Farmingdale, NY. The Foundation was established in memory of Sean Kimerling, the Emmy Award-winning anchor of WB11 sports and pre-game announcer for the New York Mets. Sean died from testicular cancer on September 9, 2003. He was only 37.
“Sean fought a brief, intense battle with cancer. He was unaware of his cancer until very late when severe back pain sent him to the doctor. He was a young, healthy, vibrant man, intelligent and kind … his life was cut short in its prime”, said Noah Kimerling Foundation President and Founder. “The Foundation’s goal is that all men will have the information they need about the disease, its symptoms and what to do about them so that more cases will be diagnosed early, and lives saved” said Rob Seaver, Vice President of the Foundation.
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer among young men between the ages of 15 and 40. This year, almost 8000 young men will be diagnosed with the disease. It has one of the highest cure rates of all cancers, with a survival rate over 95 percent, if detected and treated early. Too often, young men, like Sean, are not aware they have TC until it has spread throughout their body, greatly complicating treatment and their chances of survival.
