My Story

in February of 2017 my 15 year old son starting complaining about his left thigh being achy. We were in the process of buying a new home in Milton were we surprised him with his first atv. Being a active 15 year old, I thought maybe he bumped it. We moved into our new home and everyone was so happy for our new beginning. After my son began to complain again about his leg, I had him go to the Barrington urgent care. Everything changed from there. 2 days later we were in Mass. general and on April 10th, 2017 we heard the horrible words your child has Osteosarcoma. A rare bone cancer. He will have to go through 11 weeks of chemo, surgery which will consist of a metal rod being placed. Then and additional 18 more weeks of chemo. He is currently n his second round of chemo. Watching your own child go through so much, is the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Praying for full recovery and a long well deserved life to come for him.
