Each month, cancer survivors tell their story of diagnosis, fight and triumph over cancer on Eastern Kentucky’s WMMT radio. The survivors tales are inspirational and  touch on such topics as early detection, education and raise awareness for various types of cancer.

At the 8th Annual Grant Awards in November, LCF awarded the Testicular Cancer Society with grant funding to support the production of “Health Matters: Mountain Survivors,” hosted by a testicular cancer survivor and broadcasted on WMMT in Whitesburg, Kentucky. Airing once a month, the radio show interviews Kentuckians who have battled cancer. Survivors have included those of breast, testicular, prostate and more.

LCF is proud to support this radio program through the Testicular Cancer Society. The radio program reaches not only those in the Whitesburg area but also the world through the radio station’s website.

In December 2012, Mike Craycraft, founder of the Testicular Cancer Society, shared his diagnosis and battle over cancer, the special bonds formed as a survivor, and his work to raise awareness for testicular cancer.

“As young adults, there is a ton of life available after cancer,” Craycraft said on the broadcast.

Craycraft continues telling listeners, testicular cancer is a young man’s diseases, and if something isn’t right to visit a doctor. If caught early, testicular cancer can be overcome, said Craycraft.
