Mark is trained to protect lives. But he never thought he would have to fight for his own.

It was overwhelming for his wife and shocking to him. At 30 years old, Mark was diagnosed with testicular cancer. But with two small children and another on the way, they knew that they not only had to fight his cancer, they had to beat it.

They chose The West Cancer Center to be their fighting partner. Its reputation for excellence is nationally renowned. The doctors there are regarded as among the best. But what impressed Mark was the personal attention dedicated to him. He never felt alone. And because he was always close to home, he was able to be at his wife’s side for the birth of their third child, even though he was in the middle of treatment.

“If you have cancer, you want to be at the best place. When that place is close to home, it’s even better.”
