"I was 29 when I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. My wife was pregnant, my friends were complaining about turning 30. I thought, if there is one thing I can accomplish, I want to live to see 30. The day I turned 30 was the happiest birthday I ever had."
Richard Prezelski, now 38 and his wife Allison made a gift to the Abramson Cancer Center specifically to support the study of survivorship issues among testicular cancer patient, including the long-term health effects of treatment. His hope, he says, is that his son never has to repeat his experience.
