If you asked me before I was diagnosed and told me that I would have cancer, I would have told you that you must be OUT OF YOUR MIND!
I was always scared of hospitals and the term “Cancer” freaked him out. Growing up he would get anxious when he would hear an ambulance go by.
All of a sudden, I had severe pain in the lower testicle and went to the urologist. He got a Ultra Sound three days later, and he was diagnosed that day.
Luckily, I had surgery the very next day, and it had not spread. Three weeks later, the doc said it was Stage 1.
Fast forward to present day. Little did I know the day he was diagnosed would change his life for the better! I have a completely new positive outlook on life that he never thought about.
It is crazy how something bad can be the best thing for me
Being the creative person I am, I wanted to reach out in an out of the box way and educate others. I created FREETHEBALLS in September 2015, and I have not looked back!
