14 Years And Counting!

My apologies in advance, as I'm just copying and pasting this from my original post, only updating the number.

Just a heads up, this isn't a sports or sports card related post, but it's one I hope you'll stick around and read nonetheless.

Today is an anniversary of sorts for me. 14 years ago today, I was in a hospital having a cancerous growth removed from my right testicle. I officially became a cancer survivor on this date.

I was lucky. I caught it early enough to where I didn't need chemotherapy. Because of this, I encourage others to perform regular self examinations. Since most of my readership is male, that includes you. I'm providing information to help you learn what to check for. Do yourself a favor and read it. Check yourself. It doesn't take long to do, and it could save your life.

Maybe you've skimmed this post, and maybe you've truly read it. Maybe a few of you will consider this but forget, and maybe some of you will actually take the time to check. If I can get just one person to start regularly checking themselves, then I've done my job.

Go for it. Play with yourself. Just wash your hands before you go back to sorting cards! ;)


  1. Thanks for the reminder and congratulations on 14 years. I had a hydrocelectomy last year and am doing well. Keep up the positivity.

  2. Congrats on 14 yrs! I will make sure to check myself. (that sounds weird) :)

    1. Getting others to check themselves is all I ask!

  3. Congratulations on the milestone.

  4. Congrats on the 14 years and thanks for the reminder!
