Local author publishes story of surviving testicular cancer

Paul Savage, Jr., a Shreveport marketing and communication professional, has published his story of surviving testicular cancer during the coronavirus pandemic. 

After Paul’s diagnosis in February 2020, he made the unusual decision to create an online blog where he journaled about his entire experience. Those entries, along with photos from his journey, form the basis for his book.

Savage would ultimately require an orchiectomy, three rounds of rigorous chemo, and a Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection (RPLND) to finally receive an “in remission” status, almost a year later.

His uncensored story of surviving testicular cancer during a worldwide pandemic will bring you on a roller coaster of emotions covering an 18-month period of his life. From channeling strength during tough times to the difficult thoughts and questions many cancer patients are faced with, Paul doesn’t shy away from including his most personal thoughts and experiences.

“As I approach the one year anniversary of my remission date it still amazes me that people continue to discover and feel inspired by my story,” said Paul Savage, Jr. “I want to find new ways to use my voice and raise awareness about this awful disease.” 

Savage delivers an inspirational conviction of courage that will guide others to dig deep inside themselves to find positivity, faith, and even happiness, as they are faced with some of the biggest battles of their life.
