Jason, Osteosarcoma, by Lisa Auger

...it gave me a reality check...

It has been six years since I was diagnosed with cancer. In that moment my life changed; forever in how I see things and what I believe in. When I first was told I had cancer I couldn’t believe it at all. But then I truly thought I could die. Since it has happened I haven't been able to do all the things I've wanted to do such as playing sport. I would like to be good at sport, and to enjoy it without being scared of hurting my leg. Overall I don’t think cancer made me a stronger person but it gave me a reality check and made me think about things in life before I choose to do them.
