    Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Last year at this time I was fighting for my life. This year I am cancer free and traveling the country visiting zoos and wildlife sanctuaries. I remember how much strength I gained for the fight from my support buddies. Just know that you are loved and many good people are concerned about your welfare. It got me through the tough times with just a touch of grace. A great day to all.

    Hello fellow survivors! My name is Mark Mather and I am a 42 year old survivor of 3rd stage testicular cancer. I was diagnosed in early August 2010. My recovery from the ordeal has led me to new pathways in life. The realization that life is going to be amazing is new to me. I was a test subject for the theory of what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I have had to put much into recovery efforts. The effects of treatment were profound. Physical, mental and emotional all were tested. One of the biggest lessons for me was something which makes a big difference in your own life will inevitably make a big difference in the lives of everyone you meet. Believe you can do it!
