Thank you for visiting Natalee's caringbridge site. All of your thoughts, prayers, support, love, and words of encouragement are very welcome and deeply appreciated. As you may have heard, Natalee was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma in the right side of her pelvis on August 26 of this year. Ewing sarcoma is a rare bone cancer that occurs primarily in children and young adults with only 200 to 250 new cases each year in the United States. Typical treatment involves chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. However, since Natalee's cancer is located in her pelvis, surgery will not be an option. She will start chemo very soon, then move onto radiation and end with another round of chemo. All of this will take about a year. This cancer will be treated aggressively and the doctors at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin are very positive about the outcome. Natalee is anxious but is staying positive and strong. Please check back regularly as I will continue to post updates on where Natalee's treatment is at. If you do have any questions or thoughts that you would like addressed, please post them and I will respond to them as quickly as possible. Thank you again for your love and support.
