My Story

Tyler was diagnosed with a rare form of testicular cancer at the end of September. He started aggressive chemo treatments on Oct 1st. 4 days later, he took a turn for the worse when the cancer started choking his stomach and it perforated. He had emergency surgery on Oct 4th and was in the ICU until the end of December. He is still hospitalized at UofM in Ann Arbor, MI.
