Jesse Ehrlich was diagnosed with aggressive osteosarcoma in January of 2023. He and his family-Tamara and Dan and their older son, Randy (17) live in Los Angeles and are some of the biggest Buffalo Bills fans there. Since his diagnosis Jesse has been through so much. His condition is complicated by the fact that he has lived with juvenile diabetes since a very young age.
About 4 months after aggressive chemo/radiation he had an extremely complicated surgery to replace some of his failing limbs with prosthetics. Although the surgery went well, two months later he suffered a setback when the prosthetic became infected. The revision surgery was extremely painful and has resulted in a condition called complex regional pain syndrome. They cannot continue to treat the cancer without first addressing this issue, which requires him to be on massive amounts of painkillers and delay chemotherapy.
His family faces each adversity with ever increasing dedication. Jesse has been in the hospital more than he has been home in the past 6 months-he even had to celebrate his 13th birthday there. It has been difficult for them to face many of the financial challenges of this journey.
