I met Paul Cohen at the first Sarcoma Event planning meeting. He too had a sarcoma in his leg. Unfortunately, he lost his leg. However, he gets around very well on his prosthesis. I ‘admire’ his beautiful leg! He will soon be a “demo dummy” (as he puts it) for kids trying to make a prosthesis like his with LEGO’s. I can’t wait to hear the stories surrounding this adventure!
Luca (who is just 3) has been battling rhabdomyosarcoma. He just finished treatment 3 months ago. I met him last year at my first Sarcoma event when he was getting ready to start radiation. Luca’s Mom, Lucia, left a major impression on me. We discussed radiation treatment & how it would for him. I was Happy to fill her in on radiation realities.

Tag had a sarcoma in the web of his hand. He has been cancer free for 2 years, 4 months. He has four siblings. I met his Dad at a Sarcoma Bike/Walk planning meeting this year.
