Brave Woman Fights Rare Cancer And Loses Her Leg After Giving Birth To A Baby

A brave mother Georgie Kats was living a successful life with a handsome husband and a successful career. Her life changed completely when she was diagnosed with an exceptionally rare soft tissue sarcoma.

Her all wishes came true in her life. She got a handsome husband, a successful career and she was pregnant with her first child.

During her 8th months of pregnancy, one day her mother spotted a small, flesh color lump on the side of her left foot in the evening of August 2019. She had no idea what it was.

Her gynecologist also called the lump as a harmless cyst and advised her to leave it alone until she delivered her baby. She gave birth to a beautiful baby daughter in September 2019.

In December, the lump swelled and she got a second opinion from her GP but she was reassured it was nothing to worry about.

She was frustrated as she was unable to wear her favorite heels. She decided to remove it and made an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon.

During the removal of the cyst, the surgeon’s face look told Georgie that something was wrong. She was feeling healthier and strong at that time.

The doctor disclosed the devastating news to her that a rare soft tissue sarcoma called liposarcoma was growing inside her foot.

Georgie started thinking about her husband and daughter that what would happen to them if she died. She said you never think that this would happen to you at my age. Especially when two professional doctors told her that it is nothing to worry about.

After finding the truth she called her sisters and tell them that her brain hurts, her lymph nodes hurt. She felt like cancer has spread throughout her body.

Liposarcoma is a type of cancer that is started by fat cells. It is usually in the muscles of arms, legs, or abdomen. Georgie is one of just 92 women in Australia who was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer.

Doctors told Georgie that cancer had not yet spread. They immediately scheduled 28 daily sessions of radiations to destroy the disease.

Her treatment was successful but doctors gave her advice to amputate the leg below her knee for the best chance of survival. She decided to amputate her leg.

Georgie said she remembered tears were streaming down her cheeks in the operating theatre. Amputation removed all traces of cancer and the doctor disclosed to her that she had 70% chances of survival.

She said amputation was a difficult decision for her but there are many cancer patients who don’t get an opportunity to survive like this. Georgie said the feelings of being alive with her husband and daughter is the best feeling in the world.
