I am a testicular cancer survivor. My name is David. I was diagnosed in 2002 when i was 22. I'm happy to say that i have since beaten it and even got married. Its a wonderful feeling finding that one person that can look past my one testicle and a huge scar on my chest to love the person that is me. Now, when i was told that i have cancer the doctor told me that i had to bank some sperm. So i did. Now that i'm married i would like to use it. unfortunately with today's economy, i can't really afford to pay all the money to have the procedure done. I'm looking for some help. My friend told me to see if i can get help paying for it since i'm a cancer survivor. Any ideads?

    I was diagnosed in August at age 21 and just finished up my treatment. When I first went through the sperm banking process, the center was sure that a lot of it was covered by insurance since most Docs say it is mandatory to do before you start treatment. if you have insurance it may be worth a shot to ask them
