Synovial sarcoma at 16 — CC’s story

  • unnamed-file.cc

Redkite and jimmyteens.tv have created a video interview with 19-year-old Charisse aka CC who was diagnosed with a rare form of tissue cancer called synovial sarcoma at 16.

In the video she says “I was like an average 16 year old and like nothing better than hanging out with my friends. I was in Year 11 at school and especially enjoyed subjects such as maths and performance.”

During the film, CC tells us that synovial sarcoma is a rare form of soft tissue sarcoma and is common in adolescents. It can also be misdiagnosed as a growing pains.

Throughout the film we hear from CC as she takes part in a photo shoot, we see photos of CC meeting Hugh Jackman and we get to hear CC sing Pink’s Beam Me Up.
