Jamie, Ewings Sarcoma, by Lisa Auger & Georgia Brizuela

I was 19 when I was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma in my left thigh. It was a massive shock. I never would have thought I'd get cancer. In the last six years I have relapsed four times had four surgeries on my thigh, countless rounds of chemo, had a total of six months radiation, and a stem cell transplant. But I’ve always done everything with a smile. Don't get me wrong, there were a lot of tough times, but I never lost hope. Six years on and I couldn't be happier with my life; engaged to a wonderful man and getting married next year. I look forward to the future and hopefully one-day kids.

I have come to realise that my scar is a symbol of what I've been through and what I’ve accomplished. After battling for so many years I now wear my scar with pride. I hope Scar Stories opens your eyes to see that we're all the same; from every wound there is a scar, and every scar tells a story.
