My Story

In Jan 2014, Lyndsey, was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in her right fibula - that's your lower leg bone. Our brave cancer fighter fought her way through 19 rounds of chemo and learned to walk again after major surgery to remove the tumor.  Lyndsey, the Cancer-Fighting Ninja, was a great responder to chemo, and finished her long journey to the end of treatment in Sept 2014.  If you ask her about the scar, she'll most likely smile and remind you To Not shave your legs with a light saber.

After treatment, Lyndsey asked "what do I do with my Port?" and had a great idea for some New Years Eve fun!  With the help from good friends, we covered her port in dry ice, then she smashed it, placed it in acid, set it on fire, and finally strapped under the exhaust of a bottle rocket. Made for a Great New Years Eve party! 

We are thrilled to share Lyndsey is now a Senior in college in Dallas, TX, studying political science, and will be graduating this year!  After college, she is planning to attend law school.  She’s pictured here enjoying a beautiful day at the beach. Together, we look forward to a brighter future.

We are truly grateful to our friends, family and work colleagues for their support and prayers during that difficult year and to this day - keeping us sane and in good spirits. As always,  we thank her awesome medical team: Dr Maria Falcon-Cantrill, Dr Zachary Child, and Dr Aaron Sugalski for their incredible medical care and all of the Doctors, Nurses, and Staff at Methodist Children's Hospital and UT Health San Antonio.  Lyndsey said it best, as she left the hospital after her last round of chemo, 'I am no longer just surviving, I am a SURVIVOR!'
