It is now 4 years since we heard the words that Peter had cancer. Peter was diagnosed with ewing's sarcoma, in his pelvis on March 11, 2009.  At the time Peter was 11 years old. Peter had 14 rounds of chemo, 5 weeks of radiation treatments and had 1/4 of his pelvis removed. Peter's pelvis was replaced with cadaver bone and secured with a metal plate and screws. To regain his mobility after surgery, Peter worked really hard. Currently. Peter is in high school and plays both basketball and soccer for his school teams. Peter has the physical scars from his cancer, but our whole family carries the emotional scars. We have learned from this experience to cherish every moment and not to take anything for granted. We are not promised tomorrow, so we must make the most of today.
