– Understanding a hemipelvectomy is an intense surgery.
– The surgery involves removing part of your pelvic area.
– A hemipelvectomy is normally done to remove some sort of cancer.
This is a very personal project for me. I had Ewing Sarcoma in my right ilium and as a result, I had a hemipelvectomy. This affected my family, friends, and my entire school community. Everyone rallied behind me as I fought cancer.
As I said before, this was a very personal project for me. This wasn’t just something I learned for a project. If I had had more time, I would have expanded on the details in the presentation and added slide notes for narration.
I know all of the facts of this project intimately because I lived it. I am proud that I am walking today as a result of hard work and dedication both on my part and on the part of my team of doctors, nurses, physical therapists, family, and friends.
