Children's Cancer Research Funding

100% of donations go towards finding a cure for childrens Ewing's Sarcoma Cancer

My story

I am a 26 year old male from Australia who moved to Canada to pursue a PhD in Engineering in 2017. Diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma Cancer in July. I have had 5 spinal surgeries since my diagnosis. Before the first 2 surgeries I was temporarily a paraplegic. The loss of control of my lower extremities happened quite suddenly. I am beginning to regain control of my lower body and functionality is returning day by day. I contracted MRSA Super Bug 11 days after my first surgery which really set things back (this lead to 3 more surgeries to deal with the infection). I am currently trying 10 months through chemo treatment with 1.5 months to go. After chemo I will have a 6th and hopefully final surgery to remove the last bits of cancer near my spinal cord. I am so well supported by my friends/family in both Canada and Australia. I am also greatly supported by the University of Calgary while I am temporarily out of action. I welcome this cancer challenge and I look forward to beating it.
