#KnowYourBalls Survivor Story - Cory Hentgen


During Testicular Cancer month, we're raising awareness to all males on how important it is to #KnowYourBalls. Starting today, we will be posting Survivor Stories from those who have beat Testicular Cancer on Mondays and Wednesdays for the rest of the month.

Below is a testimony from one of our Speakers Bureau members, Cory Hentgen. Read more about his Testicular Cancer journey and feel free to comment below!

"Hello. My name is Cory Hentgen and three years ago I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. I had a right orchiectomy and four weeks later three weeks of chemotherapy. I never chose to go through cancer but I knew all along that I wanted to use my journey to help others. I came across the Testicular Cancer Foundation and saw that they had a great program that educated others about the disease and the importance of early detection through monthly self exams. I was able to meet and be encouraged by other survivors in the Speakers Bureau. Now, I have the privilege of speaking with sophomore boys every semester on the importance of early detection of testicular cancer. If I just save one life, the journey is well worth it."
