On 4/22/09 I was diagnosed w/ Stage 1 Testicular Cancer. On 4/22/09 I beat Stage 1 Testicular Cancer.
My story is one of early detection. In April of 2009 I noticed something was off during a self exam. I went and saw my family doctor and we scheduled and ultrasound for the next day. After the scan the next 24 hours were a blur. Blood work, urology consult, surgery, recovery.
I was very lucky to have found the cancer early and there was no spreading or growth. I went on an active surveillance plan. I am happy to report I am 5 years & 3 months clear.
Livestrong was the 1st place I turned for answers to my questions and the feedback and community they provided got me to a great place. The challenge was an opportunity for me to go out and raise awareness and funds and my may of saying thank you. I've been blessed w/ meeting some amazing individuals and Livestrong has given me so much to be thankful for.
Cheers to a great 2014!
Today, we fight!
