Title: Family Gathered Together
Description: An adult African American man is outdoors with his wife and three children. He was diagnosed as having osteogenic sarcoma of the upper left arm. Surgeons implanted a metal rod in place of the cancerous bone; a new technique. Since the muscle and tendon were saved, he still has use of the arm. The procedure was possible since his cancer had not spread.
