18 Year Old Fighting Testicular Cancer

18 Year Old Fighting Testicular Cancer

Battling testicular cancer is rough no matter what your situation is, but being a teenage son of a single mother is even more stressful. Isaac Trevino’s entire family was diagnosed with COVID-19 on July 21. They quarantined and took it easy and thankfully the disease didn’t hit them terribly hard - except for Isaac. As his family recovered, he worsened and went to the emergency room after throwing up blood.

He was sent home but didn’t improve, and his mother Brenda Stahl insisted that they do their due diligence and give him a CAT scan and whatever else it took to figure out what was wrong with him. The result: testicular cancer.

“I’m shaking because when I got the phone call she didn’t just tell me he got cancer, she told me that it was from the testicle to the back and then from the back to the lungs and from the lungs to the heart and from the heart it’s spread to the brain,” she said.

Isaac had surgery to remove one of his testicles, but will have to undergo a significant amount of chemotherapy and radiation therapy in order to clear his system. To add problems, his family home is being gutted and renovated due to disrepair, with Isaac not even having a room to recuperate in. Stahl has started a GoFundMe to help raise money for the project.
