My Story

I'm a 20 year old University of Minnesota sophomore. I was diagnosed with testicular cancer on Monday, January 25th, 2010 (the day after the Vikings lost to the Saints). It was a bad couple of days! Since then, I've had two surgeries, been scanned by more machines than I knew existed (including CT scans, and bone studies, and pet scans!), had radioactive fluid injected in me, and given up a lot of blood for testing. The results: Stage 3 cancer that has spread to two lymph nodes and one lung. It responded well to chemotherapy and I was able to keep up with school!

I was declared cancer free on April 20th, 2010!
