Hi my name is Hillary Thomas I'm 24 I want to share my story because it show that even the very sick can be bullied. When I was 17 and a junior in high school I was diagnosed with Osteoscarcoma a form of bone cancer. I was already the shy aquqrd one with no friends so when I was diagnosed and started chemo which unfortunately made me the "Bald Pasty White Chick." You would sthink the years of bullying would stop well because I HAD CANCER, so as life went on with extreme chemo treatments it made me even more not so bright. So I became a very easy target with the ONE girl I called my fried now leading the group of psychos. Even thouhgh you think the mean hateful words couldn't get any worse your very wrong, the summer going into my senior year I had a major surgery consisting of a total knee femur and tiba replacement in my right leg. Going into my senior year still doing chemo and in wheel chair with my leg sticking oug straight the same group of people but more of them started physically abusing me by running into my leg and even dumping me off my chair wiyth no one there to help or defend me I became so depressed so much I stopped chemo for 6 months wanting to die. After I graduated my 6 year old brother at the time told me he wanted me to see him graduate that made me realize I had to fight this cancer and thats what I did and 7 years later two more fighs with cancer, a above right knee amputation, a large part of my left lung tken out I'm finely cancer free and healthy!!!
