Swimmer Eric Shanteau Fights Testicular Cancer, Inspires Victims
There is an Olympic athlete with testicular cancer who still competes. Eric Shanteau is not doing this to raise money for testicular cancer, but he actually is putting off treatment to compete, despite the fatigue and pain from the growing cancer.
"While I don't agree with Eric Shanteau's decision since he's 24 years old and the quicker he gets treatment, the better his chances of survival are, you have to admire what he's doing," writes Jamie from EG Citizen Cancer Blog.
Eric Shanteau is diagnosed with the testicular cancer a week before leaving for the U.S. Olympic trials, but the swimmer says cancer relieves competition pressure.
We wish Eric quick recovery and treatment from testicular cancer, as well as good competition in Olympics.
