HI there Brian,
Teddy Kennedy Jr. was diagnosed with a chondrosarcoma in his teen years also and had to have his leg removed. Hes now a practicing attorney and an advocate for people with disabilities. Hes the son of U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy. This was way back in the the 70s and hes still doing well =).

wishing you wellness

I had chondrosarcoma removed from my left femur when I was 19. I'm now 26 with my first recurrence in the same place - chondrosarcomas happen to everyone at all ages - don't believe everything you read on the internet. I've met many people out there like me. If you're interested in meeting more chondrosarcoma survivors, join our group at Yahoo! groups: http://groups.yahoo.com/groups/chondrosarcoma

I was diagnosed with chondrosarcoma at age 22. Lost my right leg and hip to it. It seems like there are more people our age getting this cancer than doctors/etc seem to realize--I've met quite a few! Someone already posted about the yahoo chondrosarcoma group, so I'll just second the recommendation. They are a really helpful group of people!
