Ballsy on Today.com

Every day, Thomas Cantley walks six to eight hours pushing around a 6-foot-high inflatable ball. Cantley's goal: to push the giant ball from Santa Monica, California, down the southern coast of the U.S., stop in 11 cities, and eventually make his way to New York City.

But Cantley's journey is no average hiking or cross-country trip. Rather, the ball he is pushing serves a greater purpose. It's a metaphor, meant to raise awareness and money and spread education for testicular cancer.

It's a disease that Cantley himself is a survivor of.

mAss Kickers feature on our founder, Matt Ferstler

Matt Ferstler is a tireless mAss Kicker!  Shortly after his testicular cancer diagnosis, he created The Testicular Cancer Foundation.  He is always on the move. We met him 4 years ago in Austin, Texas and have kept in contact ever since.  We were very fortunate to catch him on his down time and ask him a few questions.

mK:  Thanks for hanging out Matt!  First question… What/ when was your diagnosis?  How did you find out about your diagnosis?

MF: I was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer, Jan 23rd 2009. Coming up on my fifth year of remission!

mK:  Congrats on 5 years!  What were your initial symptoms?

MF: I noticed about a year earlier that I had a few lumps on the left testicle. I didn’t know what that meant. Waited a year and then went to see a urologist.

mK: Why did you get involved with advocacy?  What exactly does the Testicular Cancer Foundation do?

MF: When I was diagnosed with testicular cancer, I honestly didn’t know anything about the disease. Isn’t that crazy? Testicular cancer is the #1 cancer in men ages 15 -34 and I didn’t really know anything about it! So, I guess it just seemed logical to be part of the movement to change that. I wanted to spread the message to anyone and everyone that this is such a curable cancer if young men knew how to do a simple, self-examination and catch it early. So I started the organization—Testicular Cancer Foundation —in October 2009 while I was still going through my own cancer journey.

“Let’s Talk About Balls – For a Good Cause”

In the dad-blogger group I belong to, a pretty great guy–by the  named of  Jim Higley–asked our group: “Who would like to talk about your balls–for a good cause?”

He asked which of us would like to do a blog post in support of  Team Single Jingles Man UP Monday PARENT BLOGGING TEAM. (As I am a fan of my balls, I signed up.) He didn’t have to ask twice (for 1: Jim was asking; and for 2: well, this is something that has hit pretty close to home for me on a few fronts.

I know I will need to have this talk with my son, as I had testicular cancer (and his brother is a cancer survivor: stage 4 germ-cell tumor).

“It’s Time for an Awkward Conversation”

This post deviates just a little bit from the stuff I usually blog about. It might make you feel a little awkward. That’s OK. I do, however, believe this is something that’s extremely important. Because cancer sucks.

Someone is diagnosed with testicular cancer every hour.

Every. hour. That’s a scary number. READ MORE HERE
