PSA about Sean's cancer

If you've read the I Wish series, you'll be familiar with Sean, one of the main characters in Wishing for You. Early in that book (spoiler alert), you learn that Sean has testicular cancer.

I found an article about testicular cancer in my newsfeed today--and now I'm passing it along as a public service announcement (PSA).

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men from ages 15 - 34. According to the American Cancer Society, if detected early, the five-year survival rate is nearly 99%.  If it has spread, depending on where it's metastasized, the rate drops to 73%. So please browse the 8 Silent Signs of Testicular Cancer, and make sure the men in your life (regardless of age) know.
