“Who knows why we have such taboo feelings about the many “below the belt” cancers. Perhaps because we just started talking publicly about any cancer in the last few decades, or maybe it’s simply the nature of where on the body these cancers lie. In any case, celebrated Houston interior designer Kelly Amen’s organization, Cancer Below the Belt, is on a crusade to end the stigma associated with the 12 cancers one can develop in that region.”

HOUSTON, TX – It’s no secret that cancer can strike anyone, at any age, in any part of their body.  But when it comes to certain types of cancer such as prostate, ovarian or colon, silence can also be a killer.

“In 1993, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer,” said artist and interior designer Kelly Gale Amen.  “I was too young.  I had no symptoms.  I had no idea that I could be ill.”
