My Story

Thankfully, Ricky is a survivor.  He is nearly 3.5 years cancer-free from Ewings Sarcoma.  He is a very energetic normal 9-year old boy who loves all things Video Games and is lookin forward to learning how to ride a bike!  

On December 27, 2011, Ricky was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a malignant tumor found in the bone/soft tissue. It's an agressive cancer & requires aggressive treatment. He was only 4 years old when he was diagnosed. Ricky has a smile that will light up a room, the cutest dimples you could ever hope for and a very gentle soul. He is a very energetic little boy (he keeps mom and dad very busy). 

Ricky spent 9 months in treatment and had a radical surgery called a Rotationplasty in order to save his life.  He is considered a below the knee amputee.   He completed treatment on September 16, 2012.
