The other side of childhood

Dominique Schell dom.schell1996@gmail.com

Abstract

My name is Dominique Schell and I'm an osteosarcoma survivor. I was diagnosed back in 2006, at 10 years old, and have been dealing with the repercussions of my diagnosis since. Today, I'm 20 years old and opening up about my experience with childhood cancer. I've been giving talks to high schools and universities for the past year, desperately trying to raise awareness for sarcoma through sharing my story of positivity, perseverance and passion. I've also started up a foundation, Crutch4Sarcoma, which aims to raise awareness and funds for sarcoma research, an area which has hardly any funding.

My talk will cover my journey as a child through cancer treatment, how I've dealt with over 20 surgeries and external fixators during teenagehood, and how I've come out stronger and more positive than ever.
