Gay college athlete Alex Obendorf is fighting cancer – here’s how you can help with mounting medical bills

Read this story on Outsports and want to do what I can to spread the word about former college diver Alex Obendorf has been fighting for his life for most of the last six months.

Alex found out in July that he had testicular cancer. He soon had surgery to remove a mass from his body, but the cancer had spread to his lymph nodes and then on from there. Surgery was followed by rounds of chemotherapy. He is facing more surgeries to remove more masses in his abdomen and lymph nodes.

He explains it all on a GoFundMe page that has been set up with the goal of raising $50,000 to help pay mounting medical bills.

Alex is a senior at West Virginia University studying International Studies with an emphasis in Business. While attending WVU he was able to be a part of the Collegiate Swimming and Diving Teams. Due to illness he had to withdraw from his classes last semester, but plans on finishing his degree this Spring. He hopes to then enter a Master’s Program in Mental Health and Rehabilitation Counseling to give me the opportunity to help people who may be going through similar struggles to the ones he has faced.
