    I've been a cancer survivor

    for quite some time now. But for some reason, I've been really emotional about it lately. It's not really talking about my story that chokes me up, it's hearing about other's stories. For some reason it triggers memories and emotions that I can't even comprehend. Especially when...

    Double Orchiectomy

    My story isn't very long. I have had testicular cancer twice. Once in 2005, and once in 2010. Both times resulted in the loss of a testicle. I now have none. I cannot have children now, and since the testosterone medicine is so expensive I do not take it. I guess I am glad...

    The experience of being sick,

    like chemo, radiation, and surgery-sick can be thought of as a gift. Once you survive, you have the insight of knowing what other cancer (soon to be) survivors need to help them through their journey. Experience, friendships, and Life are all precious gifts that result.
