Hello, I'm Jon Carter, the man behind Odd Balls - Funguy. I'm a skier, an adventurer, and a cancer thriver. My journey is anything but ordinary. At the age of 30, I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. But instead of letting this diagnosis define me, I used it as a catalyst for change, leading to the creation of Odd Balls. My story is one of resilience, determination, and a refusal to be defined by my circumstances. It's a story that I hope inspires you to live life to the fullest, no matter the odds.
