My name is Simon, and this is my story so far. This June I was married to the love of my life and this September our first baby is due to be born. These are big chapters in anyones life, and two of the happiest chapters of my entire life. During this time of what should've been utmost happiness for us as newlyweds and soon to be parents, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Testicular Cancer. Obviously this was quite the shock, being diagnosed only a few months after we were married and a few months before our baby is due, the consequent tests and surgeries I had to undergo left us both reeling and recovering, literally. After having two major surgeries that left me in a state of recovery for 10 weeks, I have now started an intense Chemotherapy Treatment. As you can imagine, this has made it impossible to have a normal job or work schedule because of the intensity of my treatment and its regiment, as well as my wife is now entering her ninth month of pregnancy.
I've started this GoFundMe so that I can raise enough funds to start my own business. I have always had a passion for photography, I've been taking pictures since I was 15, and regardless of what job I was working at the time, I've always wanted to be a professional photographer. Having my own photography studio would afford me the opportunity to pursue my passion and provide for my family- which besides my healing, is now my only priority.
It is the most important thing for me that I am still able to take care of my family. We've only just started out and I desperately want to be a good husband, father, and provider. If I could get the funds and equiptment I need, I'd be able to make an income even while undergoing such extensive chemotherapy.

The Doctors told my family and I, the prognosis is good. They identified the particular type of cancer as CorioCarcinoma, found and removed the source tumor from my body. I do have other tumors, in my lungs, but the chemotherapy I'll be starting soon will take of those. I thank my lucky stars everyday because this type of cancer is very sensitive to chemo, and is still curable for me. I thank those same stars for all of the people who have been so caring and generous since my diagnosis and since I started this GoFundMe.

From Dylan and me: This came from our change jar. We could have made it a flat 70, but how fun would that be? We love you more than our change though. Follow those dreams boy. ♥ ♥
