This is my friend Terry, and this is real. Help him out, tumblr.
“My son Terry was recently diagnosed with a synovial sarcoma. Synovial sarcoma is an extremely rare and highly aggressive soft tissue cancer, that has a tendency to spread to the patients lungs.
Terry had the symptoms of this tumor since the age of 14. We went to the doctors on numerous occasions, just to be ignored and told it was pain due to his being thin. Early this year, Terry went to an outside doctor who immediately noticed it was a tumor, and sent him for approriate tests. He had surgery last Wednesday, in which the primary tumor was removed. He just received the catastrophic diagnosis a few days ago, and are working to accept it. At the same time we were told thatsome of the treatment he will need, will not be covered. Including some of the important scans needed in order to properly stage and treat this disease.”
