An osteosarcoma (OS) diagnosis is usually shocking, leaving you frightened and full of questions. This book hopes to bring you knowledge of; the disease, its treatments and the experiences of our community of Osteosarcoma families. The details of our journeys may be different, but there is a unique connection to others that have walked the osteosarcoma path that is strong and comforting. Together as a community, we will Make It Better for people with osteosarcoma.
Thank you to the Joyce and Bernard Zimmerman Foundation for their generous support in making a printed version of this book available to families.
About the Author:
Elizabeth Vallejo is MIB Agents Program Chief. Prior to osteosarcoma entering the Vallejo Family’s life, she was a science teacher and school administrator from Chicago. She has been traveling with her husband Eric and twins, Ian and Annika, around the world for twelve years as they worked in International Schools. Their osteosarcoma journey started in May 2015 when her son, Ian, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in his tibia. Ian battled for three years through two relapsed with tumors in his sacrum, and lungs. Finally, Ian battled treatment-induced AML(leukemia). Initially, the Vallejo journey was lonely and they felt isolated. Once they found others in the osteosarcoma community it was made so much better. Liz works to help Make It Better for all in the greater Osteosarcoma family.
