My Story

In Jan 2014, Lyndsey was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in her right fibula - her lower leg bone. Our brave cancer fighter fought 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 about the scar, she'll likely smile and remind you not to shave your legs with a lightsaber.

After treatment, Lyndsey asked, "what do I do with my Port?" and had an excellent idea for some New Year's Eve fun! With 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 it under the exhaust of a bottle rocket and made for a Great New Year's Eve party!

We are thrilled to share that Lyndsey has graduated college with a degree in political science, and has started a paralegal certification with plans to attend law school. She's pictured here proclaiming herself as "I am Lyndsey" of Team Lyndsey, and 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 challenging year and to this day - keeping us sane and in good spirits. As always, we thank her incredible medical team: Dr. Maria Falcon-Cantrill, Dr. Zachary Child, and Dr. Aaron Sugalski for their excellent medical care and all 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!'
