Nicholas, a very active 12 year old, began experiencing hip and leg pain earlier this year.  We attributed this to growing pains, sciatic pain, possibly even a poor fitting bike.  After many PT visits and things getting worse, we went to our general pediatrician and got an x-ray which didn't show anything and then an MRI.  The MRI showed a tennis ball size mass on his pelvis bone that presented like a condition called Ewings Sarcoma.   We immediately got the ball rolling to be seen at Johns Hopkins thanks to my brother-in-law.  The ortho in Anchorage confirmed they could not treat this in Anchorage and we would need to go outside to get it treated.  We go on from here...
