Brendan was diagnosed with an undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma in 2014, it is now metastatic. He lost his leg to the disease in march of 2015. This picture was taken maybe 12 weeks after his amputation.
Two in five patients with sarcoma will go on to die from their disease. The effect of sarcoma on the community in terms of disability-adjusted life years is huge – Australian Sarcoma Study Group
That’s worth thinking about! I personally need that statistic to be 0.
I support July as Sarcoma Awareness Month! More conversation, more funds raised…higher survival rates! Yes Please!
