Top-seeded Red Bull skate rider Tj Rogers took to his official Instagram account that he was diagnosed with testicular cancer last January and is now undergoing chemotherapy to treat it.
At first, he didn't want to talk about what kind of injury he had, but something recently clicked on him, and he needed everyone to know what's been going on in his life.
It is normal to feel worried or overwhelmed for all skateboarders after finding out that Rogers has cancer and needs to undergo chemotherapy. However, learning more about this type of cancer treatment may help him feel more prepared and less anxious.
Chemotherapy is most often used to treat cancer since cancer cells grow and multiply much more quickly than most cells in the body.
We wish Rogers all the best and a fast recovery.
