The event is a ridiculously good time with lots of costumes and enthusiasm to get people excited and help break down the embarrassment many people have about things “below the waist” that may prevent them from talking to their doctor.
Participation in the Underwear Affair helps lift the taboo connected with cancers below the waist. Why are these cancers considered “taboo”? These cancers affect areas of the body that may be uncomfortable to talk about and that are often seen as embarrassing or shameful. Some people may not even want to see a physician to get screened for these types of cancers. This makes care and treatment an unexplored option to some of those who need it. Shedding light on these cancers means more awareness and more funding, making research and treatment a reality.
Come out June 19 to cheer her on, or better yet, DONATE today!
