My Story

Gabby is a 14yo 9th grader who completed treatment for osteosarcoma in July 2017. She was diagnosed on 11/7/17 after complaining of knee pain. She started her 1st of 18 rounds of chemo on 11/10/17 and completed chemo on 7/21/18. On 12/16/17 she had a limb salvage surgery of her left leg. The tumor, her knee and 6” of her femur were removed and replaced with titanium. 16 mo post surgey she is still learning how to walk on her own and is dealing with the permanent side effects of chemo. Chemo caused significant hearing loss so she now wears hearing aids. Gabby continues to have scans every 3months as her cancer has a 50% chance of recurrence over the next 5 years.
