Monroe man enjoys fatherhood after cancer battle

Matthew Mosher wasn’t thinking about whether he’d ever want children when he was diagnosed with Stage 2 testicular cancer in September of 2015.

As the then-25-year-old went through multiple rounds of chemotherapy, and dealt with the subsequent side effects like hair loss, weight fluctuation and vomiting, his main concern was just making it to the next day.

“It was scary,” Mosher says now. “It was something that I was never expecting, that’s for sure. I don’t know, you’ve just got to get up, got to keep going to chemo every day and get it done.

“It was tough, but it was something where you just got to push yourself through it.”

Mosher, who has been in remission since March of 2016, ended up having to have a testicle removed. His doctors told him that it was a 50-50 shot that he’d ever be able to have kids.
