Michael & Family: $3000
In May 2017, after two months of increasing knee pain, an MRI revealed Michael had osteosarcoma in his left leg/femur. He immediately began chemotherapy the following week. On August 4th Michael had limb salvage surgery, with a titanium rod replacing 18cm of his femur, and reconstruction of his knee as well. He continued with more chemo and a lot of physical therapy. He finished chemo in January 2018. All of his hard work with therapy and determination has paid off, as he has been able to return to his favorite pastime of bowling. He was able to compete in a tournament in May 2018, exactly one year from his last tournament prior to his diagnosis. He is graduating from Hough high school this spring and will be attending college at UNC Charlotte beginning in the fall.
