I was diagnosed with myxoid liposarcoma in April of 2022 at the age of 31.  Earlier that week, my wife had given me the wonderful news that we would be adding a fourth child to our growing family.  I’d also been promoted to the rank of major in the US Air Force and was working my dream job flying experimental tests in prototype aircraft.  In the midst of all this, my diagnosis seemed impossible.  Since then, my wife suffered a miscarriage, we moved our family twice to seek specialty care, and I’ve been removed from flight status pending a medical review.  The good (and most important) news is that a wide radical resection of the tumor in my left hamstring appears to have gone well!
