Welcome to the Caring Bridge site for Shay Tilander. In October 2020 Shay was diagnosed with stage 4 Osteosarcoma of his scapula with lung metastasis. He immediately began chemotherapy and underwent months of intensive chemo treatments to shrink the mass in his shoulder. In March 2021 Shay had major surgery to remove the mass and pathology came back 100% necrotic. He completed the MAP chemo regimen in July. In August he had thoracoscopic surgery to remove a met in his lung. Surgery was successful in removing it but unfortunately results from pathology came back positive for cancer. He is currently undergoing two cycles of ifos/etop chemotherapy before another scan. His strength and range of motion have improved with weekly physical therapy appointments and he continues to exceed goals and expectations. His boys and I couldn't be prouder of him throughout all of this. We continue to pray each day that the cancer goes away. This site is being used as a way to help friends and loved ones stay informed. Thank you for your continued prayers, love and support on Shay's cancer journey. #SHAYSTRONG
