June 17, 2011

BLACKFOOT – Six years ago Jason Bullock had one of those moments he calls “gut check time”. As a young father Bullock was diagnosed with testicular cancer.
The disease was not new to his family. Family members on his and his wife Dawnette’s side have battled the disease.
“When the urologist said ‘it’s cancer’ it hits hard,” said Bullock. “It is a gut check kind of thing and I had to face how I was going to react. I was just going to live. Your mental process is a big part of how you recover and live life after.”
