Shannon Gerard sells crocheted boobs and penises that have little lump inside to teach the public how to check their private parts for cancer. Called Early Detection Kit, it contains either a boob or a penis and an accompanying booklet that teaches men and women how to perform monthly self-examinations.

According to Shannon Gerard, "Using the softness and humour of these BOOBS AND DINKS, I hope to eliminate some of the fear surrounding monthly exams and encourage people to check themselves often. Breast and testicular cancers are both treatable and often curable, if you find the problem early enough"

$5 from each sale is donated to cancer research.
