September 11th, 2012 was probably the scariest day of m my entire life. It was the day i was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer found in kids. Although it hasnt been that long, i feel like i\’ve been dealing with it forever. I had to undergo chemo, radiation AND surgery. Chemo for me wasnt even the worst part. The surgery was. I finally finished chemo and had my surgery January 3rd of 2013.They had to take a huge piece of my femur(thigh) bone out and i now have metal and a 10 inch scar.I\’m doing a lot better with getting around. No more wheel chair.Just crutches. I shopuld be getting my port out soon. And when i thought i was done, i fell yesterday on my leg and i am back in the hospital because of pain management. Its a never ending rollercoaster and i wanna get off.
