Survivor: Testicular Cancer
I am a Survivor
After having a sore back for several months, i finally got it looked into, but it was to late and it had spread to my lungs. After being put on life support and put into a coma, my life was turned upside down. After several months of chemotherapy and major surgery that has left me with a scar that runs from one end of my body to the other, replced arteries and removed a kidney, and more months of chemo, i am cancer free. I also got married to the love of my life of 11 years only to have her cheat on me with several men 2 and a half years after it all and her blaming me because i was not the same person after cancer physically and mentally. I live with PTSD, everyday is a struggle and i try and live my best life, because i know it is way to short to take it for granted. So i am writing a book to help inspire others, that life is worth living no matter what it throws at you. I think the hardest part is i have now lost the one person i can talk to about it, who went through it with me. So i am reaching out to this community. It would be good to meet people who live either in Perth in WA or in the Hunter Valley in NSW of Australia.
