In March 2019, Joe‘s physical showed elevated white blood cell counts. As we tried to determine the cause, he was referred to a hematologist at North Memorial. After several blood tests and a bone marrow biopsy, he was not getting answers as to what the cause was. We made a decision to go to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. We started with a hematologist there, who requested an MRI on a soft lump in the upper thigh of his right leg. That showed a fibrous tumor and they did a biopsy on January 7. The result was high grade, dedifferentiated, Liposarcoma. We met with the oncologist on Friday, January 31 and she determined a treatment plan. The first step was to do a lung biopsy, to make sure the cancer had not spread. Assuming that is the case, he will consider a clinical trial, five weeks of radiation, and surgery to remove the tumor.
