  • carla I will pray for your son. I was 32 when i was first diagnosed. It was on my femoral artery on my thigh..same I am 46 and staying positive...please keep up the petition..a lot of people forget about these orphan cancers because they do not appear in as many people. we need to continue the fight. God Bless.

  • Brian stapleton I had thorasic synovial sarcoma. It was caught early because it collapsed my lung. They resected a portion of my right lung. Its been tests ever since without chemo. I was lucky and feel for you deeply and your son. All of my prayers are with you.
