This Dog Helped His Owner Through Testicular Cancer

Posted: Updated:

After being diagnosed with testicular cancer, one man found support in an unlikely place.

Thomas Cantley joined HuffPost Live host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani to discuss how his dog, Vader, helped him in the course of his illness.

“He’s my emotional support,” said Cantley. “When I’m down, I have him, and when I’m going to be on the road and these people are going to be telling me their stories and stuff like that, he’s that icebreaker that kind of gives them that clarity.”

When asked how he keeps things in perspective, Cantley had this to say: “It’s taking something negative and turning it positive.”
