    My 13 year old daughter was diagnosed with osteosarcoma last month and we’ve finished 2 rounds of chemo – due to mouth sores we were not able to do the 3rd round this week and drs say that we will skip the 3rd round & go to 4th round as scheduled next week – did your son have to skip any rounds – we are so nervous about that-

    Hi Donna,
    My son James had terrible mouth sores too and we had a terrible time with HD Methotrexate. There is a website call http://www.acor.org that will let you share with hundreds of other parents that have been through and are going through what we have been through. There is a couple of tricks for the mouth sores if I remember correctly one is glutamine and seemed to help lots of the kids. James was diagnosed in February of 2007, he didn’t finish all of his treatments either and has a a few small reoccurances and we go for scans next month. My feeling is that the treatments after the removal surgery are the keys to success, they are the ones that mop up anything missed by the initial chemo’s. If you want to contact me please feel free @ coolmom53@aol.com

    Good Luck and Lots of Hugs to you and your little Warrior!!
