I started attending Massage Therapy School in September 2005. Because of the issues with my leg/thigh, I had to take a leave of absence from the Baltimore School of Massage. It was a sad time as I grew very FOND of my Classmates, Instructors & the information I was learning. It was in my Anatomy textbook, the Cancer Chapter, that made me suspicious of my situation. One of the signs of cancer was “pain in a lower extremity” & I certainly had it and it was INTENSE.
