KISS Drummer Makes Strides Against Breast Cancer

Peter Criss

KISS drummer Peter “Catman” Criss and his wife Gigi will be walking this year in support of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

The October 16th event in Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey will begin at 10 a.m.

A survivor of breast cancer himself, Criss was able to treat the tumor before it could spread any further. He told CNN that surviving the disease was actually a blessing and hopes to raise awareness for male breast cancer.

He offered advice to men who spot lumps in their breast saying, "Don't sit around playing Mr. Tough Guy. Don't say 'It's going to go away.' It might not and you might not see life anymore and how beautiful that is."
