Ayleen´s disease - Osteosarcoma

In November 2012, Ayleen complains about pain in her knee. At first her parents argue that Ayleen overdid playing horse again. Horses move on four legs, quite clear that kids move around on hands and knees a lot, galloping through the house.

But the orthopedist sees the ultrasound results and acts immediately: Ayleen is referred to the university hospital right away. Doctors begin their examinations: MRT, CT and scintigraphy reveal horrible facts: Ayleen is suffering from osteosarcoma, a malign and prolific type of bone cancer.

These news left everyone, Ayleen, her family and all friends in a state of shock!
