As part of the Tri-City Americans “Movember” cancer awareness drive,  former American Shaun Vey will be at the Friday night game vs. Regina (7:15 p.m.) to call attention to the “Aware Down There” program.

Vey, who was part of the rebirth of Americans hockey and the legendary 2008 team that went all the way to the WHL finals, was diagnosed with testicular cancer in February 2013. He is now cancer free because it was detected early. He is on a three-month active watch to make sure it doesn’t return, but he wants to help spread the word about the need for attention to men’s health.

Movember originated in Australia in 2003, as the month of November was set aside to call attention to men’s health issues. Among them is prostate and testicular cancer.

The Americans are conducting a month-long awareness campaign, highlighted by the Friday night game vs. Regina as Testicular Cancer Awareness night. Vey and his wife Robin are expecting a child soon!

Vey talked with Americans broadcaster Craig West about his experience.
