The Final Chemo Down

I Endured Nine Weeks of Chemo Therapy to Treat Testicular Cancer… and Today Is My Last Day

No written blog post today to mark the final day of chemo. The below vlog will speak for itself. Please give it a watch (it’s only 2 minutes 30 seconds).

    You should probably send her this one too… How is it possible she's your mom? She looks young enough to be your sister! (Total truth there… I was expecting the caption to say that).
    Congratulations on your last treatment!
