No one knows the cancer journey better than those who have been through it and they could have a valuable role in research
I was 14 years old when I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in my left leg in 2008. It required surgery to remove the bone from my hip to below my knee and replace it with a metal prosthesis. Chemotherapy was also needed. I relapsed in both lungs in 2010, needing surgery on my lungs and chemo.
