Darren V's Story

I want to give back to others who go down the testicular cancer path, similar to how a stranger on the internet did so for me, when I went through the process.

I was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2020, during the COVID-19 Pandemic. I experienced a deep sense of loneliness and isolation, which I thought was due to the pandemic. After talking to other survivors, I heard this feeling was very shared among testicular cancer survivors.

I hope to use this platform to lend an ear to any problems of recently diagnosed men. Let's remove the stigma of men admitting their suffering. I look forward to helping you out!
