  • Let's Have Some Fun

    So, this might be a little strange and I couldn't think of anywhere else to here we go...

    January 2013...I was diagnosed with testicular cancer...had surfer mid-January...started radiation early February...finished radiation late March...

    As far as I'm concerned (and the doctor), I'm cancer free but start annual checkups and blood work January 2014

    Through all of it...with the help of my amazing wife, son (for kicking me in the balls and bringing the whole TC to light with that swift kick), incredible family and light hearted friends...I've stayed so positive and fun about the whole situation that people have asked me if I was taking some extra pills to stay happy.

    Well, a week after I finished radiation...I went to a friends kids birthday party at a skating rink...I've been skating for years and years but for some reason, I lost my balance...fell...tried to catch myself...broke my month of healing...a month of physical therapy...a month of self therapy...and here I set

    My wife and I decided a month ago that we've had one "fun" 2013 and it was time to start enjoying ourselves instead of the doctor's we bought a boat.

    I want to name the boat something fun, something goofy, something that makes people wonder...

    So, now that you know my medical history for the year...


    I've searched the web for nicknames for people with one testicle, nicknames for people who have had TC and haven't been able to really come up with anything.

    I'm more than open to any and all ideas or suggestions and figured I'd turn to the pro's...the people that deal with this every day...

    So, post all your ideas...
