A California man is passing through Oklahoma City, spreading awareness about testicular cancer in a very unique way. 

Thomas Cantley, 31, was diagnosed with the disease four years ago. 

With help from social media, Cantley is pushing a 6-foot-in-diameter, inflatable, yoga ball across the country.

Cantley's group left Santa Monica, Calif. three weeks ago. 

“I am relying on good faith and people,” he said by phone in New Mexico, Thursday. 

Follow Cantley on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

ProCure Oncologist Dr. Andrew Chang said testicular cancer is one of the most common cancers in males 18 to 35 years old.
