Friends and family of Lee Wallace (26) need your financial help and support to help Lee beat cancer, he is currently suffering from a very rare bone sarcoma in his pelvis. Financial aid will help with Lee's ongoing treatment which will include travelling abroad for additional medical expertise and surgery to amputate the right side of his pelvis and leg. 

Bone sarcomas, are very rare, particularly so in young adults. Lee's tumour is so rare it has  never been seen by leading specialists in the UK or China. It is a mixture of an Osteosarcoma, a Ewings sarcoma and a spindle cell sarcoma, therefore a definitive diagnosis has not been possible.

In terms of treatment, this his been a massive barrier, as the doctors are unsure how to proceed. To further complicate things Lee's cancer has now spread to his lungs.   Having done a lot of research we are aware of  treatment options in other countries, but unfortunately these treatments carry a large price tag. Your financial support will give Lee the best chance of finding a cure and a chance to live. 

Lee's sister Dawn will be managing all funds raised on behalf of Lee and the Wallace family.

Lee was your average, carefree 26 year old from outside Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. He worked hard all week and enjoyed the weekends with his friends and family. He likes nothing better than going to football and hurling games, backing horses and socialising....

That all changed in August 2018, when Lee went to A&E in Mullingar Hospital in the middle of the night suffering from a really bad pain in his groin which was radiating down his right leg.  He had been having pain for some time but thought he had pulled a muscle...

After having multiple xrays, scans and blood tests he was admitted to a ward. Lee and his family were told the next day that he had a very rare and very large bone sarcoma of his right pelvis and that he would be referred to The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham. There are neither an oncology sarcoma specialist nor an orthopaedic oncologist who specialise in pelvic sarcomas in Ireland. Therefore Lee cannot have surgery at home. Lee and his family have travelled to Birmingham on a number of occasions for biopsies, further scans, pre surgery assessments and consultations.  

Since October 2018, Lee has been undergoing intensive chemotherapy in St Vincent's in order to shrink his tumour in preparation for surgery.   But unfortunately the pelvic tumour has grown and the spread of cancer to his lungs has made our search for a cure all the more urgent.

If anyone reading this knows of any Medical Oncologist anywhere who has expertise in the treatment of sarcomas particularily of the pelvis. We would be delighted if you could give us details. 

Thank you for taking the time to read Lees story and for your donation, no matter how big or small. 

PLEASE HELP LEE BEAT THIS CANCER!!
