JELQING FOR CANCER
Jessica Amal-Rice (star, co-producer, co-writer of JELQING FOR GAINS) passed away from EGFR-positive lung cancer in 2021, just two short years after shooting JELQING FOR GAINS.
She was not a smoker. EGFR-positive lung cancer is caused by a gene mutation, not cigarette smoke. Anyone with the gene mutation in their DNA can contract the disease at any time. There is no cure and life expectancy is 1-3 years.
To honor her memory and to help combat this horrific condition, Dirty Little Shorts is raising money for City of Hope. Treatment is currently being developed to prolong–and hopefully one day save–the lives of others who have had the misfortune of contracting EGFR-positive lung cancer.
100% of the donations go directly to City of Hope to combat EGFR-mutated non-small cell lung cancer.
