Please consider either sharing, donating or telling a male friend to get themselves looked at ASAP to help spread awareness. 

 Prior to October 1, 2018 Bobby found a hard lump in his right testicle.  We quickly sought out doctors in the area, in which he had an ultrasound and blood testing done. The ultrasound was positive for a mass in his testicle.

On Octocber 4, 2018 he had surgery at Danbury Hospital where they promptly removed the testicle and spermatic cord. 

On October 10, 2018 the pathology report showed that he was 95% Embryonal Cancer, which is an aggressive form of testicular cancer, he was then diagnosed stage 1B. 

We were then referred to Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC because there are only 10 Embryonal Cancer Doctors in the US.  We met with these doctors and we’re given treatment options and a date for the next CT scan. 

On November 15, 2018 we had our second CT scan which sadly wasn't the best news. The CT scan showed that the cancer did in fact spread to his lung. At this point they upgraded him to Stage 3A. 

 Before treatment starts we have sought out a sperm bank as per request of the doctor to preserve fertility.

On December 10th we start 4 rounds over 10 weeks of Chemo at Sloan Kettering in Westchester, NY. 

The funds will will help the ever growing bills that are starting to pile up. Whether it be medical or travel bills. Although we have Insurance through work it doesn’t cover everything. Every little bit helps. 

A little about Bobby he’s 31 years old who loves everything about cars from the license plates to fixing cars. He finds comfort in his new kitten Calvin. When it comes to food theirs not much he will not eat. He is the sweetest most giving and caring man I know. I feel blessed every day for having this wonderful man in my life. There is nothing I will not do for him. Please consider any option you can.

**Bobby & his Fiancé created this Gofund me account together. 

Thank you
-Chrissy & Bobby

Bobby and I just wanted to formally tell everyone who have supported us, offered kind words and prayers. That Bobby’s CT scan came back today and it’s clear and free of cancer! The nodule on his lung is no longer on his lung. This is the best news ever. We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done. God is so good!

Just to update everyone thankfully we have 1 more round of chemo left next week. It’s bittersweet that it’s finally coming to an end and we pray that we no longer will need Chemo after this. We will know in a month when they do a CT scan if the chemo worked. I ask for prayers and shares for Bobby. The financial burden is upon us as medical bills are starting to come in. We ask that you have your family members checked out. God bless you all. Thank You! Love Bobby & Christina

On Saturday November 24th we had our 1rst sperm bank deposit to secure fertility as Bobby May be sterile after his 4 rounds of chemo, there’s no way to know for sure so the hospital required the deposit. Today on December 3rd we met with his new doctors at Sloan Kettering in Harrison Ny. The doctors were very nice and informative which makes us hopeful for productive chemo therapy sessions which will run until the end of February. Chemo starts December 10th. Our questions have been answered we just have to make it through the next 12 weeks and this will all be behind us.

We are in good spirits trying to stay positive and putting our faith into god. Is all we can do at this point. Please share to spread the word and help others from this disease.


Thank You!
Love Bobby & Chrissy.
