    I too am a testicular cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with stage III embryonic carcinoma when I was 16. They told me I had a 60% chance of living more than 5 years. That was 28 years ago! Feel free to read my story on my page. I will answer any questions that you may have.

    I was 16 when I was diagnosed with stage III embryonic carcinoma. I was a couple of weeks away from stage IV and underwent 3 surgeries total and over 8 1/2 months of chemotherapy. That was back in 1984/85. I am cured, not in remission. God is good. Feel free to read my full story.

    Feel free to ask specific questions. I went through 3 surgeries and 8 1/2 months of chemo for stage 3 embryonic carcinoma (testicular cancer). I was actually pregnant with my own twin! I am here to help!

    Celebration (Cured!!!): After a few years of twice a year blood tests and CT scans, I was given a clean bill of health and was diagnosed as cured. I had stage 3 embryonal carcenoma that could have been treated much earlier had I spoken up when I first found the abnormality on my testicle. Because I put it off, I was a few weeks away from being stage 4 and terminal. The key to beating testicular cancer is early diagnosis. Don't go through what I endured due to my attitude of, "Oh, it will go away on its own." Cancer won't "go away." It must be treated and the earlier the better! I am a 27 year survivor and am now the Pastor of Bethel Baptist Church of Lovelock, Nevada. God keeps us for a reason ... what's yours?

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): My second round of chemo was a somewhat aggressive drug that I received through I.V. once a month for 4 months. I only lost half of my hair this time and didn't get anywhere near as wiped out as the first time. My treatments ended in time for me to walk with my graduating class of high school even though I hadn't been able to attend classes that year. I did go back to night school the following year and obtained my diploma.
