I've got the balls... Well ball.. to wear my #wonderwoman tiara in public. Do you have the balls to check yours? You don't have to be royalty to treat them like you are. Be your own #superhero today and do a self-check. They’re best done after a shower, when the scrotum is relaxed, and they’re pretty easy: just place your index and middle fingers under the testicle with your thumb on top. Firmly but gently, roll the testicle between your fingers. Any weird lumps or bumps should be checked out by a doctor. -

It takes balls to send a text like this to a cancer patient, one week before they begin chemo. This month, @themightysite posted a challenge for contributors to share a way a diagnosis impacted a friendship (full story in link in bio). While this story is nearly a year old, my hope is that it will help another person give pause before reacting in emotion. Ultimately, I had to cut this person out of my life (like my surgeon did to my ball) but I wish it didn't have to come to that. -

Are you a high school student? Do you have high school aged children? Do you teach high school students? I need your help. I'm working on a project with my Dept of Education and I want high school students' opinions. Click the link in my bio or type in the bitly to your browser to answer a short 9 question survey. Thank you! -

So I guess I'm half welcome in this classroom? -

One week of school down. Somehow, after experiencing fatigue from chemo, teacher tired isn't nearly as bad anymore. -

Yesterday would have been my grandpa's 77th birthday. Unfortunately, he passed away from renal cell cancer about four years ago. He was my first real experience with death and my first up close experience with cancer. When I was diagnosed, I thought of him constantly and his amazing attitude. His mantra was "Just tell me what I need to do and I'll do it." I tried to live that and make him proud. He was, and continues to be, a role model and inspiration for me. I wear a tie daily to work in honor of him. I miss you every day Grandpa. I love you. -

He also really liked cupcakes. -

Year five officially starts tomorrow with open house. Five balls are pictured here... One might be covered though. I made sure to check each and every ball for any lumps or irregularities. Have you checked your balls today?

This bag used to be the bag I took with me to chemo. Now, it's my gym bag. I wrote a post (link in bio) about how cancer not only took a ball, but it took months of my life away. I'm making up for lost time in various ways, including hitting the gym regularly, under the guidance of @estrella_body_architect. I used to be in good shape and worked out regularly. I stopped when I started my Masters but never committed again after. Now I have a reason to. I managed to gain weight during chemo. I don't want to just be where I was before chemo; I want to be better. In addition to improving my body, I've been improving my mindset, but you can read more at the link. -

Also, I used every single filter possible on this pic. Do you think Jason will like my #selfie? -

I promise you that I'm trying to model tennis balls. Although, you can never start self checks too early! I teach English to students in China via webcam. This came up in the singular/plural lesson. It was quite hard to keep a straight face... Not to mention the title of this lesson was "My Body Parts!"

The #eclipse isn't the only orb you should be checking out today! No special glasses needed for a testicular self check. Simply take each testicles between your fingers and roll it firmly but gently. Anything that seems off should be checked out immediately. Repeat monthly. -

Thrilled that @themightysite asked me to come on as a contributor! My "6 Ways to Talk About Testicles" has been cross posted there (link in bio) and I've submitted some past stories too. I'm looking forward to joining another platform to share awareness about testicular cancer! Feel free to follow me there, too. -

Balls. Nuts. Sack. Bullocks. Nads. We have many words for testicles, but we don't often share them. I wrote a post (link in bio) today about six ways I've talked about testicles in public, sometimes to complete strangers. What will you do to help change this conversation? Reading and sharing this blog post is a good place to start. -

Here's my official license plate, as part of my mission to promote these talks. Shirt creds to @courageandacure! Head on over to check out some of her awesome products. I've got my eye on one or two more. -
