Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Tessa was diagnosed with high grade pleomorphic sarcoma in early June 2021 after an x-ray for side/rib pain in late May showed a mass in her right lung pleura. After a round of chemo on an initial treatment plan, her treatment was changed to that of an osteosarcoma even though her tumor is not on a bone. It does, however, have many characteristics/components of an osteo/bone tumor. Just prior to her diagnosis, she had been active and playing on her high school varsity and JV soccer team. We thought the pain was just a bruised rib or strain. It was all such a shock to say the least. Thank you for your prayers.
