Junior Nicole St.Martin was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma a month and a half after her 11th birthday. Osteosarcoma is a type of bone cancer that begins in the cells that form bones.

St.Martin said that she “…battled it for 10 to 11 month[s] in the year 2012.”

Her biggest support system through this time was her family. Even though she did not see them often, they would Skype, text, or talk on the phone to keep in touch.

“When times got tough, I either watched my favorite YouTuber or talked to other cancer patients,” said St.Martin.

In the beginning of October, St.Martin had her fifth year scans and they were clear. She is now a member of the survivorship program.

“After five years of clear scans, they say you are cancer free,” said St.Martin.
