Its been 7 years since my son was diagnosed with testicular cancer.
He had just turned 15. At the brink of manhood , a teenager- and we all know what this is like !! and diagnosed with a cancer he felt he couldnt share with. Luckily a few weeks before he told us a TV programme about TC was on and he saw it and checked himself, he told us he felt a lump within a few days- I felt at the time someone was looking out for us.
He didnt even want us to tell his siblings at first- Paranoia was in the air. My husband took it all very badly- first born son syndrome-we werent to tell anybody- secrets, secrets and more secrets...
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
