Recently, a dear friend of mine and fellow CrossFitter, Jared LeBouef, received some most unexpected news.  He was told that the abnormal swelling he was experiencing was known as a  pure seminoma or classical seminoma –  a germ cell tumor (cancer) of the testis. It is one of the most treatable and curable cancers, with survival >95% in the early stages.  As his doctor put it…”If you are going to get cancer, then you picked the right one…”

Lucky or not, this news turned Jared and his family’s life completely upside down for a week until a Computed Tomography (CT) scan and biopsy would be performed to rule out any spreading or metastasized lesions.  Well, he and his wife can sleep at night because everything came out negative.  The tumor was removed and was isolated within the testis.

So, as his friend and CrossFit Comrade, I wanted to put a little WOD together to share his and his family’s pain.
