He has been struggling. He has lost 30 lbs since April. We just found out a new nodule has appeared where his sutures were. I’m devastated. We had to postpone chemo yesterday because his hemoglobin is low. I’m beyond destroyed over this.

Hello. My son was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma in 2017 just two weeks before his 21st birthday. He had proton therapy and major thoracic surgery 6 weeks later. Surgeons removed two ribs, part of his lower lobe, and the mass that was growing near near it all. He had to take a sabbatical for a semester from college, but he returned to school and graduated on schedule. He had just started working two weeks before at a job in his field, when we received the news that his cancer had metastasized. He is only 23. Mayo immediately began the process of getting his chemo started. We have now completed two cycles. He has no appetite and is very nauseous. We are devastated by this all. He is trying so hard to be strong. 5 days after his first cycle, he went back to work. I know he is hoping he will be able to do the same this time, but I’m not sure.
