2009 – KISS founding drummer Peter Criss announced on his official website that last year he was diagnosed with breast cancer. Yes, you read that right. We’ll let him fill in the details:
This is Breast Cancer awareness month… In ’08, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, but with (early detection) my great doctor Alex Swistel & staff and the Lord above, who always looks over me, I am cancer free today!!!
I wanted to let you know men get it like women do. Don’t be afraid to let someone know if you have a lump. Do the right thing for you and your loved ones and get it checked. Man or woman, there is no discrimination with breast cancer … we all don’t have nine lives.
