AUSTIN, TX - Testicular cancer survivor Thomas Cantley or otherwise known as "Mr. Ballsy", is pushing a giant ball across America to raise awareness for men's health.
He quit his job and sold his house to push a six-foot 'testicle' from Los Angeles to New York City after he was diagnosed with testicular cancer, according to his website.
Cantley planned stops in Dallas, where he was Sunday, Austin and Houston as part of his month-long, 11-city journey.
Around 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Cantley pushed the ball across the Anne. W Richards Congress Bridge in Austin, according to a statement. Two-thirds of the way through his Texas tour, he's traveled 1,680 miles.
His website says the entire campaign is funded by the "generosity of the people he meets along the way, whether they have a personal connection with cancer or simply believe in his cause." Cantley's goal is to cover the inflatable ball with messages from people he meets on his adventure, according to the website.
Cantley's dog, Vader, is accompanying him along the way.
