A big thank you to Ben Kilcollins and the Kilcollins Band for organizing the One Ball Pub Crawl in support of Testicular Cancer on August 2nd at Oasis in Portland.

This great local band raised over a thousand dollars to help fight cancer in Maine and we really appreciate their willingness to remind people early detection saves lives! If something doesn't seem right, get it checked out as soon as possible.
