Kannon is a multi-sport athlete who was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer, in April 2018.
My name is Kannon.
This past April I told my parents I had a lump on my leg. After a volleyball game, I was unable to walk and my mom took me to the ER. They explained to me I would need surgery. I had surgery, then a week later we were all told the news...I have Ewing's Sarcoma (bone cancer). Something I thought was an infected "pimple" has changed my entire world as now I have "Cancer."
Thrust into the world of medicine, full of tests and being poked and prodded, pulled from sports, school and the life I knew...
Along my journey:
I have met some of the most AMAZING people. I've had my ups and downs but with with the support of my family, friends and everyone we've met along the way I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I have finished all my 48 rounds of chemotherapy, I've had surgery to remove the remaining dead tumor. I am currently waiting results from my final PET scan and some other tests. Then I will have another surgery to remove the port and another smaller tumor located on my skull (I call it my Unicorn horn, because who doesn't like Unicorns?!). I will be returning to Desert Vista High School & sports again once I'm all cleared.
All the organizations that have helped me so far along my journey --
I can't thank enough.
