Associacao de Assistencia as Pessoas com Cancer (AAPEC)(translated via Google)The AAPEC Viçosa attended the "9th Party Horse and Mules" of Viçosa, which took place at the Exhibition of violist, from 18 to 21 April ((Slide show at: http://www.aapec.org.br/2013-04-18-vicosa/)), and had the presence of hundreds of people... Institution leaflets about breast cancer, uterine cervix, and prostate were distributed, on occasion. Both children and adults loved taking pictures with the AAPEC mascot, a friendly snowman in the shape of testicle, which... drew everyone's attention.

BuzzfeedWell, remember, fellas: While Mr. Balls might be something out of a nightmare, the real nightmare is letting testicular cancer go undetected.


aside: if you happen to wind up in a Burn Ward in Brazil, don't you worry, they've got a not-scary-at-all mascot for that, too...
