Hi I'm a new member and was diagnosed with Osteogenic Sarcoma in Dec 1999 in my upper right shoulder. I have completed a very agggresive chemo protocol in Oct 2000 and had my shoulder and upper arm successfully reconstructed. I would really enjoy hearing from those survivors of this type of cancer or anyone that would like some support. I will do my best. Thanks.

Hi, I had osteosarcoma in my L femur and had to have an amputation. I was diagnosed when I was 7 and went thru treatment until I was 11, I am now 24 and fully recovered. I would like to help you through this

I am about to celebrate my 25th year of living without cancer. In 1977(!) I was diagnosed with Osteogenic Sarcoma in my L femur. Back then (I was 15) the aggressive treatment was amputation of the left leg. However, I have led a very productive life which includes a Masters degree, two wonderful children and a great job. I ride bikes (Long distance), rock climb, scuba dive...the mind is the only limitation! Email back if you have a chance or any thoughts!
