Project Description

– 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.

Showcase Video

Content: The top 3 things I learned from this showcase were:

  • I learned about the procedure itself and the healing process.
  • I learned about the different types of hemipelvectomies, the rationale behind each type, and the different recovery needs associated with each type.

Culture: This project relates or connects to my family, background, peers, community or my own personal interests in these ways:

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.

Metacognition: In reflection, one thing that I would have done differently during my journey with this showcase is:

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.

Social/Emotional: One thing I am most proud of by completing this showcase is:

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.
