For the past few months Brooke has been in a lot of pain and has had swelling in her right hip bone (pelvis area). She even started to walk with a slight limp. Finally, she was sent to have an MRI done. Once the results came back she was immediately sent to an orthopedic surgeon at Johns Hopkins because there appeared to be a growth on her hip bone. The orthopedic surgeon had a CT guided biopsy done to try to determine what the growth was on her right hip area. The results from the biopsy determined that Brooke has Osteosarcoma (bone cancer). We then had to have chest and bone scans done to see if the tumors have spread to other parts of the body. The results from the chest scan determined that Brooke has 4 tumors that have spread to her lungs. Brooke will have to undergo 2 rounds of chemo and then she will have surgery to remove the tumor in her hip, and then she will have to have hip replacement surgery followed by physical therapy.Then she will have another 3 to 4 rounds of chemo before having the lung surgery to remove the tumors. Followed by more chemo and physical therapy lots of scans and blood work. Brooke is a very strong and brave 13 year old girl and with JESUS CHRIST the love and support of her family and friends she will be inspiring and touching the lives of many people for many years.
