hi my friends daughter, 14, has only survived one year after diagnosis with osteosarcoma. she started with a lump on her ankle and on diagnosis it was found in her hip, shoulder and lungs. very unusually it then spread to her pancreas. then her wrist and thumb. chemo had v little or no effect, the osteosarcoma spread regardless. her life on a year with chemo was horrendous. she had no quality of life. now the hosp has withdrawn the chemo and they are waiting for her to pass. i havent found any info about such a case on line. can someone please help? has anyone else been through this.?
