On December 10th Reilly was diagnosed with Stage 3 Osteosarcoma.
Osteosarcoma is a cancerous bone tumor. Specifically, it is an aggressive malignant neoplasm—arising from primitive transformed cells of mesenchymal origin (and thus a sarcoma)–that exhibits osteoblastic differentiation and produces malignant osteoid.
Osteosarcoma is the most common histological form of primary bone cancer. It is most prevalent in children and young adults.
Reilly is a fourth grade student. He is a cancer survivor. He survived 21 chemo cycles, leg amputation and lung surgery. Despite of that he is full of positivity. He recently joined my yoga club. He is truly inspiring! Not convinced check out this video.
A page has been created for Reilly to keep family and friends updated on his progress through his journey.
