      Hello Mfoor, I was diagnosed with Stage III Testicular Cancer in November 2011. I am happy to report that I'm in remission. I finished my 12 weeks of chemo in February 2012. Have they decided if he will receive chemo? The best thing you can do to support him is to be there. Be that ear for him to talk to. I can tell you that when I went through treatment, I was more concerned about the support for my family. I knew the overwhelming stress my wife and daughter were under. Seeing me go through what I was going through. My friends made sure they had meals every night. If my daughter needed a ride to or from school, it was taken care of. Friends found things for my daughter to do on the weekends so she wouldn't have to sit at the house and worry about me. Let your friend know that you're there for him. For his family. As I told my wife, there really isn't anything you can do to make this better. But I found comfort in knowing that my family was taken care of.

      Same way you would support him if he had any other form of cancer.
