Jorge Ibanez

Jorge aka #JorgeStrong was diagnosed with Chondroblastic Osteosarcoma at age 14 on June 28,2017. The tumor was located in his right tibia. He followed the standard chemotherapy protocol, and had Limb salvage surgery. After 10 months of aggressive chemotherapy, he went into remission for 3 months.

In June 2018 they found a nodule in his lungs which was removed. Four months later the scans showed another tumor in his right side, involving his pleura, ribs and diaphragm. This time he started a trial which worked for a few months, until the doctors noticed new spots in his ribs and lungs. He tried another chemotherapy again trying to kill this monster, but it didn't work.

He entered hospice care in May 2019. A month later, new spots appeared on his mandible and his brain. He fought bravely until the very end of his life. He transitioned to our Heavenly home to be healthy and whole and cancer free on August 19th, 2019.
