Dollar Shave Club CEO Michael Dubin has a family history of colon cancer. So when his doctor recommended a colonoscopy, he decided he wanted to live-stream the procedure to help raise awareness about the importance of early screening.
It’s, well, not exactly riveting viewing, but that’s not the point. Mike has partnered with Colon Cancer Alliance, who have doctors standing by to answer any questions you might have about the procedure. You can tweet your questions with the hashtag #DSColon, and follow along for informative posts on colon cancer and the procedure. The stunt, by the way, is timed to coincide with Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death, so this is really an important cause. Hopefully Mike can raise awareness and get some guys to schedule an early screening.
