At 11 years old, I spoke up and told my parents about pain I was having in my left testicle. A visit to the ER and an ultrasound showed a mass (about the size of a pea) in my right testicle (with no explanation as to the pain in the left). My parents believe that one of my many guardian angels was giving my left side a pinch to make sure the right side would be seen. 😊

In less than a week, surgery was scheduled and the tumor was removed at Nationwide Children's Hospital. My surgeon, explained that my case is an extremely rare form of testicular cancer. 


With the cancer removed I still visit Nationwide Children's Hospital for blood tests and scans frequently to make sure it hasn't returned. My experience has inspired me to start a service project to purchase and dedicate Butterfly wagons for cancer awareness. Wagons are available for dedication for $500 each. These wagons are used throughout the hospital by the many children who are patients like me.


Please help me reach my goal by purchasing a "Check 'Em" Awareness T-Shirt, or making a monetary donation on this page.

Remember to speak up when something doesn't feel right, early detection saves lives!
