My Story

I have always love to play sports and enjoy being with my family and friends. I was looking forward to graduating and going onto college. As a senior for the class of 2005 at Candor High School I was having a lot of pain in my right knee and wanted to get it checked out before basketball started. This is when my entire life changed I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer). Being my first time ever in a hospital I had to endure 8 surgeries, 18 chemo treatments, 5 emergency stays due to infections, and many transfusions. Thanks to research, chemo treatment, and limb-sparing surgeries I am doing well today. I will never be able to participate in any sports that require running or jumping, that's okay because I AM ALIVE! I can still swing a golf club though. Because of my love of sports I have been in college for 3 1/2 years studying sports management. There is so much more research to be done to help more children survive, to help survivors not have to live with the after effects of chemo, and to help keep children and adult from relapsing. I thank my dad and all the other people for shaving their heads to raise the much needed funds for the research.
