This is Evan Davies.   He was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma  just before his 17th birthday in 2014.  This is a bone cancer that started in the shoulder of his right arm.  His treament at that time included surgery to remove the tumor which has left his right arm mostly useless (though he is lucky to have it thanks to his amazing surgeon!) and 12 months of intense chemotherapy.  This all took place during his senior year of high school, and, being the amazing person that he is, he still managed to graduate on time with his class in May 2015.  He went cancer free for the next year until Summer of 2016.  The cancer had come back - this time appearing in his right lung (osteosarcoma often-times will reapper in the lungs).  Due to the location of the tumor, the only way to remove it was to take out the entire lower lobe of that lung which was done in August 2016, and we hoped that would be the last of it.  Unfortunately, during a follow up CT scan just before Christmas 2016, another tumor appeared in his lung.  With the location of this new tumor being very close to his heart, removing it is very risky and would likely require removing the entire lung.   Evan started chemotherapy again in January in hopes that the tumor would shrink enought that removing it would become less risky and that they could take it out without having to remove the lung completely.    After several weeks of chemotherapy, a CT scan showed that the tumor had not shrunk, but had actually gotten bigger.   The tumor was not responding the the chemo and our hearts sank.   His doctors were hoping that he could participate in a clinical trial with some new medications, however they found that Evan does not qualify for this trial due to the type of mututaion of his cancer cells.  Our next option is another promising medication that is not part of a trial.  Since Evan is now 20, he can take this drug outside of a trial.  The cost of the medication is incredibly expensive and he will need ot for at least 6 months and our and all medical expenses are ongoing.   We are hoping for your help to save Evan's life.  Thank you for taking the time to read his story and, through your donation, continuing the spirit of hope for a wonderful son, brother, uncle, friend and all around amazing young man.
