Original KISS drummer Peter Criss will be honored by the American Cancer Society as Humanitarian of the Year. He'll pick up the honor at this year's Hope Lounge gala on March 9th in Freehold, New Jersey, not far from where he lives on the Jersey Shore.

Criss successfully battled breast cancer in 2008 and went public with the news because he wants everyone to know that men, too, can be afflicted with the disease.
