While in second year in the University, she slipped and landed on my right knee which caused an incessant pain that would not go away. Later, she was diagnosed with Osteogenic Sarcoma (a malignant bone tumor) and was told her right leg needs to be amputated in order to save my life. After 6 months of trial and error with other methods and medical advice, she agreed to have her leg cut off.
