“The fear of amputation” that I felt as an osteosarcoma survivor Mom, “I’m scared.” Someone, “Hey, someone, help me.” God, “Forgive me.” When I was only 10 years old, I developed osteosarcoma and was notified of cancer. At that time, I was a third grader with little experience in life. Rather than being afraid that my body had been invaded by cancer cells, I felt tremendous fear of amputating my right leg.
However, for me, who was 10 years old at the time, it was so important that I couldn’t hold it. At that time, I was crying in my heart right after I was notified. Mom, “I’m scared.” Someone, “Hey, someone, help me.” God, “Forgive me.” However, my situation, which I slept overnight and had cancer the next morning, did not change. Faced with a terrible reality and inescapable, this ordeal was too harsh for me, just 10 years old.
The scariest thing in the world is when something that you can never escape happens in your own body.
