Mark Pilgrim – 2nd left – testicular cancer survivor

While he is probably better known for being that “radio and TV guy”, Mark is also known for being a cancer survivor.

At the age of 18, he had stage 4 testicular cancer, which spread to his lungs and kidneys. Mark remembers the oncologist at the time telling him that the prognosis was “uncertain” and that they would have to wait and see how he responded to chemotherapy.

Mark had nine months of intense chemo sessions lasting up to four hours a session and credits the support and love his family showed him, for pulling him through.
