Robert “Bobby” Payne

Born April 3, 1985, 2011 wasn’t the year he thought cancer would have crossed his path or even find the words forming out of his mouth. The journey began during the month of May 2011. Bob was concerned about an infection “down there” in one of his testicals. As any man would, he hoped it would go away on its own but as the pain heightened Bob bee-lined it to his family doctor. The doctor confirmed it was an infection and sent him on his way with antibiotics. A week lapsed and Bob wondered if he was prescribed the correct medicine; low and behold the antibiotics weren’t helping. He revisited his doctor on a Wednesday, he proceeded to do an ultrasound, found a cancerous tumor in one testical, and surgery was scheduled for Friday.

Three months passed and the worries, life changes, and coping seemed too good to be true; a physical, sickening feeling on August 27th had Bob’s worries in a knot, again. The thought of another nut missing was the end of any man’s dreams. August 29th, dooms day on Bob’s calendar now, was the earliest appointment available, and hopefully for the future, the worst news yet. The cancer creeped back. His testicular cancer spread to his lymph nodes; the pain he felt in his back during those past three months became all too clear.

September 12 is another day in the books; day one of chemo for Bob and the passing of his grandfather’s fight with cancer in 2003.
