3. Our Founder Is a Cancer Survivor
Kevin was diagnosed with testicular cancer in April of 2001 and told that it had spread to his lymphnodes. He had surgery to remove part of the cancer in his testicle then immediately began very aggressive chemotherapy treatments for the next 4 months. By the end of 2001 he was on the road to recovery. His experience made him realize the need for an organization that provided support to people with cancer.
4. The Name Came After A FireFight.
The idea for the name "It Ain’t Chemo" came about in late 2001 after Kevin returned to full duty in the fire service and had a very rough day on the job. When a co-worker asked if he was OK, his response was:
"Yup! IT AIN'T CHEMO!"
