The effects of cancer will touch almost everybody's life one way or another. Billions of dollars are poured into researching cures and treatments. It is estimated that 50% of all of the people in the world will develop some sort of disease in their lifetime. Thankfully, with the advance of technology and medical breakthroughs, not all cancer diagnoses are death sentences like they used to be. Half of the people diagnosed with cancer will go into remission. Mortality rates depend on a number of factors, but when cancer is diagnosed during its early stages, it has better odds of being treated.
Osteosarcoma is one of the rarest forms of cancer also known as bone cancer. It is even rarer for someone to develop this kind of cancer in their jaw, but it is pretty easy to diagnose. It starts with painful swelling that does not go away. Elizaveta Bulokhova, a 24-year-old Canadian model, just knew something was wrong when the right side of her jaw started to swell and the pain became progressively worse. It started in May of 2014 and continued until she sought help in July of that same year.
Her pain was unbearable, and she knew that it was not a simple toothache. Biopsies and CT scans proved that she had a rare case of osteosarcoma, but that was not the only bad news she received. She was told that if she wanted to survive this cancer, she was going to have to have her jaw removed. She had been modeling for the past seven years and just knew this was going to end her illustrious career. As if that was not bad enough, she had more bad news coming her way.
