ST. GEORGE – In August, 13-year-old Mackayla Marshall of Hurricane went in for a routine eye exam and ended up being rushed to Primary Children’s Hospital due to an aggressive tumor that was discovered on her left orbital socket. After four days of tests, Marshall was diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

According to the American Cancer Society, osteosarcoma is the most common type of cancer that develops in bone. Most osteosarcomas occur in children and young adults, with teens being the most commonly affected age group.
