Justin Birckbichler  Stage II nonseminoma testicular cancer survivor. I fought cancer with chemo, humor, & awareness.

This. This right here is what motivates me to do what I do. Thank you for sharing this, and I'm glad I could help you be... On the ball.

What happens when you turn a heart upside down? Find out in this throwback video from last year. Be sure to check yourself today on #valentinesday!

Today is #NationalPizzaDay. For lunch I enjoyed a slice of @joecorbis pizza. During chemo, they were one of the only foods I ever had an appetite for. I wrote about it on the blog and the company got wind of it. Without hesitation, they offered to donate this glorious stack of pizza (swipe to see), which I'm still working through. I emailed them to say thank you but I just realized I never publicly thanked them. So thank you, Joe Corbis. The gesture really meant a lot... And I'm almost done with the stack so lemme know when you're ready to send more my way :)

Seven men. Seven bracelets. Thirteen testicles. Big shout-out to these guys who proudly rock the Carpe Scrotiem bracelets. Go forth and be ballsy!

Today is #worldcancerday. What will you do to help spread awareness?

Not sure who has more Gryt... Me or the Hulk. I think this new hat from the good people of @grythealth puts me over the edge.

Gryt and the @stupidcancer app have become another outlet for me to give back to the #cancer community. Each month, I have the privilege to lead a group of awesome people in sharing their stories in monthly app chats. I'm so lucky to work with such a great crew of people and the CEO is a fellow TC brother. Want to join in? Simply download the Stupid Cancer app and #sayhello!

The Gryt team asked me to share my definition of Gryt and I'm reposting it here. "As an educator, "grit" is a popular buzzword I heard frequently. However, when I was diagnosed with testicular cancer at the age of 25, I had an opportunity to model true Gryt.
Gryt is looking a challenge in the face and meeting it head on. It's not giving up. Knowing that it may suck, but you'll get through it. Keeping a positive attitude. Sharing your story in hopes of bettering someone else.
Gryt is grabbing life by the balls... Or in my case, ball."

Make sure nothing unwanted is sprouting down there by doing a self exam tonight! Best done during or after a shower when the scrotum is relaxed, a self exam is a quick and effective way to catch testicular cancer early on. 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 ASAP.

Twelve months ago today. Nearly to the minute even. How was I feeling then? Physically terrible. Standing for long periods of time was taxing. Today? I just finished a 2.5 mile interval run. What was going on in my head back then? A mix of anxiety and hope. Anxiety that the chemo wasn't effective... But hope that it was. Today I stand here less anxious. I'm feeling the effects of anti depressants taking hold slowly and a strong focus on fitness is paying off. I'm getting back to being me. I'm still here twelve months later, cancer, and you're not. Who has the real ball(s) to live? -

PS I've got a new blog out today (link in the bio) about how I'm feeling inside and out. I'd love for you to check it out. -

Witness the wild Justin, in his natural habitat of explaining how to do a testicular self exam during a @themightysite Facebook Live stream. Check out the full video at the link in my bio!

When you want to start your day with a healthy glass of juice, but also spread awareness...

When it's above 65 in the middle of January, you get your butt outside and get in some miles. What a contrast from last year... Stairs were a beast then! #fitness #running #selfie #recovery #cancer

That face when you realize you still owe $600+ for your last scan, which is knocked down from over $4k thanks to insurance. That's $600 for a fifteen minutes scan... I guess the price of movies seems downright cheap compared to that!Still can't even begin to fathom how expensive it's been to have a ball taken from me and many months of treatment and subsequent feelings of being off. I suppose now I can literally put a price on my life. #cancer #tfw #thatface #selfie #bills
