Samuel LeFebre grew up loving music. He plays the drums, guitar and follows closely in his father’s musical footsteps. In the past few years, Samuel’s love of music declined due to the pain and lack of mobility he was suffering in his wrist. He could barely move it and his pain was so severe, he required narcotics to manage it. He had a large tumor in the end of his radius, one of the bones in the forearm that connects to the wrist, which was diagnosed as a giant cell tumor of the bone. After meeting with physicians in the Pueblo area, he became quite depressed hearing amputation was his only option.
In 2017, Alyssa Liddle was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ewing Sarcoma and was referred to Dr. Cindy Kelly, orthopedic surgeon with OrthoONE at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center (P/SL). Alyssa had a tumor in the lower portion of her right leg. Dr. Kelly presented the case to the tumor board at P/SL where the team discussed the best options for her care. T
