Testicular Cancer Survivor Pens Book Based On His Experiences

Print


Fighting cancer can be a harrowing experience for anyone. In 1995, Brian Kemper discovered a lump on his right testicle during his first year of law school. After being diagnosed with testicular cancer, Kemper had surgery and went through four sessions of chemotherapy. Thanks to the early discovery of the tumor, his treatments and the help of his friends, he was able to survive and later went on to become an attorney in NYC..

Twenty years later, still free of cancer, Kemper self-published a novel based upon his experiences fighting cancer and his years as an associate attorney at a large New York City law firm. The book, Everything Can Change, is set in NYC in 2003 and tells the story of Jack Ritter, a twenty-eight year old attorney who discovers he has testicular cancer. “When I went through my cancer fight,” said Kemper, “there were two reasons I made my way through it: I found the tumor early and I had the support of my family and friends. I wrote the book in part to help spread awareness of testicular cancer and to thank my support system for what they did for me.”

The book is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle format and ten percent of the proceeds from the sales of the book will go to the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation.
