Dublin Man Continues The Movember Momentum

By Robyn Haines

Throughout the month of November, we have highlighted local efforts to recognize “Movember” — the movement aiming to change the face of men’s health and to bring attention to prostate and testicular cancer.

While the moustaches grab attention during November, one local man is making it his mission to push the campaign farther.

In 2010, Jay Holdgreve learned he had testicular cancer. It was a complete shock to this married, father of three.

“It’s the most common cancer for men 16-34 years old, but you rarely hear about it, talk about it,” said Holdgreve.

Since he was diagnosed, Holdgreve has made it his mission to talk about it; and his doctor, Ahmad Shabsigh, is completely in his corner. Shabsigh is a urologic oncologist with OSU James Cancer Hospital.

Prostate cancer, since its a more common disease and effects much more men than testicular cancer, there’s a lot of talk about it; but in the last 5 years, I have not seen any improvement in public knowledge of testicular cancer.”

Shabsigh is hoping Holdgreve can help change that, bringing testicular cancer into the forefront. The disease is rare and effects mainly young, healthy men, like Holdgreve.

Im actually an athletic trainer, so Ive been around sports my whole life, says Holdgreve. Playing and being an athletic trainer of sports teams, Ive never talked about it with anybody.”

So along with his website,, and his growing moustache, he is trying to give men’s health awareness a boost. Holdgreve is hoping Movember can be the start of something much bigger.

“It can start as a simple as the moustache, women’s health and the pink ribbon turned into a multi-billion dollar awareness program, so maybe the moustache can be that.”

Holdgreve also started an endowment for the James Cancer Hospital and is having his next fundraiser at the BBR bar in the Arena District on Thursday, November 29, at 7 p.m.

As for his moustache, he will be shaving it on December 1.

Upper Arlington News

 UA baseball squad plans day of awareness Saturday


There’s a very special day coming up for the Upper Arlington baseball team and its fans, and this time it won’t have anything to do with what happens between the chalked lines.

The Golden Bears will join with visiting Olentangy Liberty Saturday, April 23, to observe Testicular Cancer Awareness Day.

The teams will wear decals on their helmets to promote testicular cancer awareness, in hopes of saving some of the men age 15-34 who comprise the group most often stricken.

The disease is highly curable if caught early, but half of males effected seek attention only after the cancer has spread to other locations in their bodies, a delay often caused by a lack of awareness, or embarrassment.
