Survivor, Osteosarcoma

My name is Devyani Mahajan and I am 32 years old. I am a young osteosarcoma survivor. I was diagnosed in 2017, at the age of 30, when I was starting with my research as a doctoral student. I completed treatment last year in 2019. I underwent multiple surgeries, radiation and chemotherapy treatments over a period of two years. Currently, I am working towards finishing up with my Ph.D in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from Kansas State University, and looking forward to graduating in December 2020.
