My friend Jim Higley, fellow cancer survivor and blogger at Bobblehead Dad asked some of his blogging buddies, including me, to help him get this important message about testicular cancer out with this video that he posted in iVillage. (My cat Benny accidentally made his video debut as well. Thanks from both of us, Jim!)
Jim is one of our Chemo Sabes, who wrote that the worst part of cancer for him is that his kids expect to be diagnosed with cancer. So it’s no wonder why he wants to make sure his sons check themselves for testicular cancer.
Testicular cancer is the number one cancer in young men ages 15 to 35. If detected early, it has a high survival rate. Lance Armstrong had testicular cancer, but by the time he found it, it had spread to his lungs and brain. So please have that awkward conversation about your son’s testicles. You could save his life.
Share, share, that’s fair!
