This past October, 9 year old Leo sustained a minor ankle injury while playing tackle football. X-rays, were taken and along with a small fracture, a tumor on his left fibula was discovered. This tumor turned out to be a rare form of pediatric bone cancer, called Ewing's Sarcoma. After a grueling 6 rounds of high-dose chemotherapy, Leo & his parents came to the heart-wrenching decision that amputation, was their best choice of local control. So, on February 6th, Leo underwent below knee amputation of his left leg. He has been recovering well, and adjusting to life as an amputee, but still has a long road ahead. Leo still has another 6 rounds of chemotherapy to complete as well as learning to walk with a prosthetic. His goals are to eventually return to football and to live a cancer free life. For being only 9, Leo has shown the bravery and strength of a warrior, and has maintained the most optimistic attitude.
