I was attending my freshman year at Bryant University playing Division 1 soccer this fall when I sporadically would have chest wall cramps. At 18 years old, I didn’t think too much of it, but in early October of 2023 I ended up unable to breathe one evening. Luckily my girlfriend called 911 and I was brought to the hospital. It was after a CT scan of my chest that the doctors found a mass and hemothorax which is a collection of blood in my lung that caused my lung to collapse. It took several days to have the mass biopsied. The biopsy results confirmed a rare sarcoma called mesenchymal chondrosarcoma. I started chemotherapy on October 20th, 2023 and continue with cycles every two weeks.
