Jason Morton: Since getting diagnosed, I have gotten heavily involved in cancer patient support and fundraising events. The most important cancer advocacy decision that I made was when I got involved with the non-profit 501c(3) Testicular Cancer Foundation, whose mission is to educate about testicular cancer. They have empowered me to use my cancer journey as a method of change for other young men. I want to do everything in my power to prevent anyone else from having to go through the struggles that my family and I had to endure.

Chris Olsen: Throughout my life I have dreamed of cycling across this great country; a dream of mine that has always been put on the backburner until now. In August of 2012 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Testicular Cancer and my eyes were opened. Not having much knowledge about this disease led to it being discovered late. When I was diagnosed the cancer had already spread. My journey was difficult but I still remained positive; especially when midway through my treatment I was forced to switch hospitals due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy. This experience taught me the importance of raising awareness and promoting monthly self exams.
