  • Modern science works its magic on me!

    Hi guys,

    I've got awesome news to share - after 3 rounds of BEP, the seminoma is gone from my lymph nodes!!!

    It's been pretty crazy for the last few months for me and my family, but so glad to get results of the CT scan and blood test from the oncologist today...

    It's regular checkups from now on.

    Thank you all for your support!!!

    Still can't believe it...
