Oliver Feldman was 16 when he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in his right humerus. Oliver was an artist, an avid outdoorsman, BSA Scout and jokester. When he went for limb salvage surgery in July they discovered that his tumor had broken in two and could not be saved, thus requiring the amputation of his dominant arm to remove the cancer.
As hard as that was, he looked forward to beating the cancer and to his life with friends. Another month later it was discovered the aggressive cancer had spread to his lungs.
Oliver took part in two clinical trials while he continued school, worked towards becoming an Eagle Scout, and learned to paint again with his left hand. On Jan 7 2019, Oliver took his last breath.
His creative look on life and amazing wit are two things that his friends and family most appreciate about him. Oliver continues to influence all those who know him in finding the joy in each day. We have begun Oliver Rocks in his honor with the hopes of bringing smiles to people around the globe through colorful traveling painted rocks.
