About 15 years ago...

a very true a dear friend had testicular cancer. with the removal of one testical he was back in business.

He called me last night to tell me that he again has testicular cancer. He will undergo surgery tomorrow and they will schedule a later time to do reconstructive surgery. He said the doctors are concerned why he has a second bout with cancer and what is causing it? He has tumor tracers that will try to find anything else wrong.

We have been friends for 35+ years and I owe him so much for helping me during tough times.


I guess at the end of the day some things are more important than others.

You've got that right.

He's a strong person. After the initial shock I tried to lift his spirits with a little levity kinda like that.

He told me I was the first person other than his wife that he has told. He was going to his parents house to tell them last night.

I know a guy with similar issues. He was a preemie (under 1 lb. at birth) and had many health problems crop up starting in his twenties. Testicular cancer has been the worst of it, and it came up twice, just like your friend. Best of luck to him. This is a done deal, no point crying over spilled balls. Let's just hope this is the end of it.

I will be there for you yosey, and your sick friend. I told you paybacks are hell. remember when you reached out to me when my Aunt/mother died? Now you must suffer my wrath of TRUE friendship. Can you handle it?
