Overstock.com CEO On His Testicular Cancer Story

Add another name to the chronicles of awesome dudes who have wrestled with testicular cancer and won. Patrick Byrne of Overstock.com is a fascinating dude – he’s a Tae Kwon Do black belt, was once a professional boxer, and recently led Overstock to be the first major online retailer to accept the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. So he’s a bit of a maverick, but when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer at the age of 22. The rapidly-metastasizing cancer ended Byrne’s dreams of becoming a professional athlete, but things got worse for him – after he was apparently cured, it returned two more times. Watch this gripping video about his struggle and eventual triumph over testicular cancer.
