A Ballsy Sense of Tumor - Justin Birckbichler

Patient Leader

Testicular cancer - it's a stiff conversation, and it may make you a bit testy, but we need to sack up. Once you get the ball rolling, I think you’ll find talking about testicular health isn’t a hard nut to crack. As a testicular cancer survivor, I write and am an advocate for men’s health through my blog, A Ballsy Sense of Tumor. One of my goals is for ABSOT to help others who have been diagnosed with testicular cancer to find the resource I wish I had when I first started. However, the main goal is to open up lines of dialogue about testicular cancer. I talk to and educate people about testicular cancer through as much humor as you can use when discussing cancer.

Hilarious Patient Leader

Justin brings hilarity with every word he writes when bringing awareness for testicular cancer. You can see his passion for the raising awareness about testicular cancer and the importance of men doing self exams. He wants to start more conversation around mens health in the best way possible - and his humor is an added bonus!

Justin may be short one testicle, but he's certainly not short on puns! He's leapt into his advocacy for testicular cancer awareness, men's health, & mental health; all with a healthy dose of humor that we strongly approve of. His presence as a patient leader is greatly appreciated - as are the constant laughs.  — Kyle

Justin is truly passionate about his topic even though it is a very serious illness. He makes it very funny which results in getting people more open to read it and talk about it which is making an impact on awareness which in turn leads to saving lives. Justin is truly an inspiration to others.
