No on Cancer!Helping Michael fight back!

In 2008 Michael Ruggieri was 15 years old when he found out he was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a cancerous Malignant bone tumor in his left Tibia . He had surgery to remove the tumor which consisted of part of his leg bone being removed and aggressive chemotherapy. Michael faced many tough times throughout his recovery. He was in need of blood transfusions and platelets multiple times. On July 2013 Michael's cancer returned. After many doctor visits and a biopsy, it was determined that surgery was needed. Michael is scheduled for surgery on August 15th. Surgery will consist of his left leg being amputated and aggressive chemotherapy. Michael is a strong young man who has been faced with many tough challenges. Please help us raise money for his prosthetic leg and future medical expenses.
