Jadon Neely is fifteen years old and attends Hayden High School in Hayden, Alabama where he plays football and basketball, his two favorite sports. Late February 2015 he began complaining about arm pain. In March during spring break his pediatrician thought the pain to be an overuse injury and sent him to physical therapy.
After attending therapy nearly six weeks, Jadon broke his right arm by arm wrestling at school on May 13th. He was taken to the local urgent care where the images showed an abnormal break in his humerus. They
casted his arm and sent him to do an MRI the next morning that confirmed the suspicion of a tumor in his bone that was replacing his bone marrow. He was
referred to an orthopedic specialist who began a series of testing including biopsy. On May 29th he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. He then was referred to
an oncologist to begin chemotherapy. In spite of the best chemo that is offered for this disease, Jadon's tumor continued to grow. When first diagnosed it was
roughly the size of a quarter except spindle shaped. Within eight weeks it was the size of a softball. He was given three very bad options which the best scenario to save his life was amputating his right arm. On July 29th, Jadon's arm was removed from his shoulder. He was able to keep his clavicle and scapula and his shoulder muscles. His hope is to be fitted with a prosthesis that can be powered with muscles he still has left in his shoulder. Doctors reassure him this is a possibility. He still has a hard fight ahead with five or so months of
second line defense chemo. He begins occupational therapy right away, physical and recreational therapy is to follow. He still has a lung surgery to undergo in
a month or so to remove a spot. Jadon's prognosis for survival is low in the medical world due to his response to front line defense chemo, however he isn't moved by a prognosis, but is moved by the promises of A Great Big God
