His courage and dignity as he fights this disease, and his desire to raise awareness of it, is simply outstanding.
This is his story.
“Yes, I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, but I am beating it with the know-how of my doctors, surgeon and the love and support of my family and friends and with a strong positive attitude.
I would like to raise awareness of this disease so people catch it before metastasis.
