My 7 year old daughter Eleri is fighting osteosarcoma. Fingers crossed for positive results
Hello my name is Rob, I am the father of my beautiful 7yr old daughter Eleri. Eleri was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her right femur and 6 x 5mm nodules on her chest at the end of March this year. She started the 6 x 5 week cycles of chemotherapy Cisplayin, Doxurubicin and methotrexate but after the first two drugs had a bad infection at the biopsy site and further scans showed that her tumour had doubled in size leading to emergency limb salvage surgery. The tumour and majority of femur were successfully removed leaving the growth plate of her knee and ball in the hip joint. Bone cement and metal work were put in place to keep the shape of the thigh etc. After cycle 3 we had a chest CT scan that showed a new 2cm lesion on her right lung. The oncology team placed her on 2nd line chemotherapy for 2 x 3 cycles Itoposide and Infosfomide with a 3 – 5 chance of it having a positive affect on the lesion. We had the results of a CT scan a month ago which showed the lesion had reduced in size by 2mm and that the nodules were looking to be calcifying. Eleri has had one more cycle of chemotherapy and has a scan tomorrow with results on Thursday. 🤞 for positive results so that can look at resection!!
