Livestrong Cancer Survivor walks in Nike 5K 9 days after surgery

Mike Wood, discovered that he had Testicular Cancer two months after he and his wife, Debbie discovered that they were going to be parents. He had a testicle removed and went through very agressive chemo during the pregnancy. Recently in a scan they discovered he had developed a Teratoma Tumor on his aorta and went to OHSU hospital on September for dramatic surgery to remove the tumor. This is the same doctor and surgeon that treated Lance Armstrong. Today, 10 days after surgery, Mike and his wife are walking the 5K Livestrong Race at Nike Campus.
