#KnowYourBalls Survivor Story – Steve Heaviside

“Cancer is a life-altering whirlwind of a disease. Testicular cancer, specifically, can be emasculating and difficult. When I was diagnosed in 2013, I had little information and did not personally know anybody who had ever battled the disease. Through surgery, an intense chemo regimen, and a variety of worrying tests and checkups – I really felt like I was on my own. The Testicular Cancer Foundation is not only a platform for me to share my story with you; it is something that has connected me with other brave, amazing individuals who know this struggle. Thanks to the TCF, I have friends in Texas, Illinois, Utah, Connecticut, etc who are all also doing their part to spread awareness, knowledge and understanding of this disease. I wish I had these people to contact when I was first diagnosed. I hope every guy that is diagnosed with TC in the future is aware that this support system and educational materials are there for them.

Cancer’s always a difficult journey, but organizations like the TCF make you feel a little less alone, a little less scared, and gives you hope that the future’s gonna be a little bit brighter.”
