My battle with Ewing's Sarcoma

Posted on March 21 2017

My battle with Ewing's Sarcoma
I was only 24 years old when my left check the left maxillary swelled up in less than three hours I went to the emergency room and no one there would give me a CT scan. I thought it had something to do with my surgery I had for sinuses saw a specialist and nothing after that. When I finally had a CT scan ordered by the specialist, they reviewed and told me that It can be an infection in which I need to get removed before something can lead into a big surprise.
I was set for surgery on Oct. 7, 2016, when I found out that the infection was not an infection it was cancer. I didn't understand how it happened or why it happened? and why now? those questions were left unanswered since no one can tell you. The pathology team set up with the best oncology doctor and radiation oncologist to assist me in getting it treated. But first they had to find out what type of cancer it was; they sent my sample to the cancer institute of America where they found out that cancer I had was called Ewing's Sarcoma which is a bone cancer and it's aggressive cancer if left untreated it can spread quickly, however the doctors, nurses, and everyone else acted fast in getting me into chemotherapy and radiation to make this die.
five months ago, has been a difficult journey I'm still finishing treatment because I haven't finished but everyone tells me I will be alright and I will be stronger in life. My life was put on hold and every moment is valuable and never taken for granted. Someone told me that this can be either a gift or a curse; to me, I can look back by spreading my word about the most difficult thing I had to go through and still going through to know that life can be put into hard tough challenges to makes us stronger in our own lives.
Right now, my biggest goal is to finish treatment, remover, and help someone else who is going through what I had to go through and support them as much as other supported me through my experience and hard time. They will always be there for me and they are still there for me as of today and now and tomorrow.
My name is Dana T. and I am strong and I will fight and I will continue to fight here, now, and forever.
