When starting up a student organization on UW-Whitewater’s campus, one has to consider how to balance their classes, homework and free time with their new responsibility. For Mark Liederbach, he had to add cancer treatments to that list.
Last November, Liederbach began to notice signs of cancer, and after several doctors’ visits, had to undergo surgery to find out the final diagnosis.
“I was in recovery from my surgery when I received the phone call from the doctor,” Liederbach said. “They told me I had stage two testicular cancer.”
