Last May, Garrett Benzing had a pain in his left leg. After undergoing tests, Garrett was diagnosed with Alveolar Rhabdomysarcom(RMS), a somewhat rare form or cancer.
On August 21st, Garrett had his left leg amputated mid-thigh as part of his treatment.
Garrett will undergo months of chemo and eventually surgery to remove the tumor.
