Ewing Sarcoma

March 5, 2018 - 17:30

My name is Graeme and I’m 22 living in cork. I’ve recently been diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma on the 4th of January. I’m on my 3rd cycle of chemotherapy alternating between VDC and IE. I’m going for a full body MRI scan before the week is out. Really just writing this to see if there are any people out there with the same thing I have and how they’re getting on.
I’ve also created a Facebook page called “Cancer From My Perspective” as I want to give more awareness to Ewing Sarcoma as not many people know about it (including myself when I first found out I was diagnosed). It would be greatly appreciated if ye could like and share it please and thank you.
