CHICAGO – Eminem, Coldplay, Foo Fighters and "Manny" from ManExam™. That's right, thanks to guitar great Peter DiStefano (Porno for Pyros, Lance Herbstrong, Hellride), the ManExam™ logo, or "Manny" as it has come to be known, made an appearance on stage at this year's Lollapalooza. The logo graced DiStefano's guitar strap for his performances with Tor, Lance Herbstrong, and his set with former band mate, Perry Farrell from Porno for Pyros. Peter DiStefano is himself a testicular cancer survivor, who battled the disease in 1997.

David Coleman, President and Founder of ManExam™, said DiStefano's gesture was both unexpected and unbelievable. "Meeting Peter was as honor in itself, but his willingness to share the stage with our cause was something we could have never predicted," said Coleman. "We sincerely appreciate his kindness and generosity."

Ken Kern, ManExam™'s Development Director, added that DiStefano's actions could be a huge influence to young men. "He is a musical icon to say the least. Men everywhere will see that logo and hopefully inquire – ultimately learning about the self-exam."

Peter DiStefano's Music:





ManExam™ Coalition for Testicular Cancer Awareness informs men between the ages of 15 and 50 that there is a testicular cancer self-exam, or "man exam;" educates them on the proper way to perform the man exam; and encourages them to perform the man exam monthly. This awareness and instruction may be achieved through educational materials and programs, advertising, event marketing and any other means deemed effective to reach the target audience and their families.
