Comment from: Andrew, 13-18 Male (Caregiver) Published: June 11

On 10/31/17 my nephew broke his ankle and wore a cast for 8 weeks. They removed the cast and he still couldn't walk. Was booted for 8 more weeks and removed the boot, still can't walk. MRI was done and found 14 cm tumor. Chemotherapy was done for 2 months to treat the bone cancer and tumor was removed. Chemotherapy continued until 12/18. He had radiation from 1/19 until 3/19. Rang the bell and received certificate for being cancer free. Three weeks later he had cancer again. Nothing more could be done. On 6/11/19 was his funeral. He was barely 15 years old.
