True Life Story: Osteosarcoma

In this episode of True Life Story, Wendy shares her cancer story and personal experience of being diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a bone cancer, at the young age of 19.

Her tumor wasn't shrinking following chemotherapy, so her doctor suggested that they go through with a leg amputation from above the knee, as it became a matter of life or death for her. Wendy was very angry and insisted on doing more chemo, but her doctors eventually convinced her to go through with the amputation.

Wendy shares several tips with others who may be in a situation like hers. She says to read up on everything on the internet, talk to other people, talk to your doctors and ask any questions. It's important to educate yourself, so that way you won't be afraid of anything.
