Charlotte was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her right femur in July 2018. She began chemotherapy on her 15th birthday, and endured 9 months of chemotherapy plus limb-salvage surgery. After being in remission for 9 months, she had two thoracotomy surgeries to remove nodules from her lungs. She has now endured several different chemotherapy regimens, radiation and immunotherapy treatment for relapsed osteosarcoma. Charlotte battles this disease with courage and strength. When she’s feeling good and not at UCSF, Charlotte enjoys sewing, golf, swimming, spending time with her family, shopping, cooking and hanging out with her friends.
