TLC will air an encore presentation of “The Man With the 132-Pound Scrotum” in honor of Wesley Warren Jr., the focus of the special who died Friday in Las Vegas. After sharing his story on the cabler, 49-year-old Warren became an instant sensation and received an outpouring of support.

The one-hour program documents Warren’s life with a rare medical condition called scrotal lymphedema, which he was diagnosed with in 2008. His scrotum had grown so large that he was unable to walk normally, go to work, drive a car, or even wear pants. Desperate for help, Warren set out to find a doctor who could perform the life-saving surgery he needed in order to get his life back.

The special will re-air March 19 at 10/9C.
