Perhaps it is a survival instinct that has made the male species adore beer. According to this article, the beer ingredient xanthohumol blocks a biological pathway that allows prostate cancer to be fueled by the male hormone testosterone.
Sounds like a good reason to cheers!

Jonny stopped by the launch party last weekend for The Cancer Support Community: the merging of Gilda’s Club and The Wellness Community. This merge of two well known not-for-profits will create one of the largest resources for cancer fighters in the country!
“Backed by evidence that the best cancer care includes emotional and social support, the Cancer Support Community offers these services to all people affected by cancer. Likely the largest professionally-led network of cancer support worldwide, the organization delivers a comprehensive menu of personalized and essential services. Because no cancer care plan is complete without emotional and social support, the Cancer Support Community has a vibrant network of community-based centers and online services run by trained and licensed professionals. For more information, visit www.cancersupportcommunity.org.”
Jonny is packing his bags tonight for a long day tomorrow in Baltimore, Maryland. He will be visiting St. Joseph’s Cancer Center and the University of Maryland Cancer Center to spread the IA mission.
Hospital visits help Jonny to interact with patients and educate others on the benefits of connecting fighters and survivors in 1-on-1 relationships, which allow an individual to support/recieve support from another who has fought/is fighting a certain type of cancer.
Following, he will visit the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults in Baltimore, Maryland, who are friends of IA!
A little more about UCF: Since 1997, the UCF has been working to provide young adults and their families with a unique and comprehensive system of support. Its mission is to provide support programs, education and resources, free of charge, to benefit young adults, their families and friends, who are affected by cancer, and to promote awareness and prevention of cancer.
Tonight, meet IA at the Landmark for the Social Stimulus Club. The group meets the first Wednesday of every month at a new venue for a new charity with the goal of shaking up the Chicago philanthropy scene while stirring up their favorite after-work beverages.
“ SSC realizes that in these trying times, people need to redefine how they spend their “entertainment” budget. It’s time to turn “G”reed into “G”iving and inject their hard earned money back into the city’s economy. The goal of Stimulus Social Club is to help turn up the volume on the needs of both local charitable organizations and Chicago’s restaurant and nightlife venues. Stimulus Social Club takes place at a different hip venue with a different charitable beneficiary each time. “
Tonight: Imerman Angels is on tap!!
Join us tonight for Chicago’s Stimulus Social Cub at Landmark (1633 N. Halsted St) 5:30-9pm.
