While playing soccer for her high school team as a sophomore in 2010, Hanna Jorgenson felt pain in her right hip. This hip pain turned out to be Osteosarcoma. After a grueling 8 month treatment protocol that included amputations of her right leg, hip, and half of her pelvis, Hanna was declared free of cancer. She went on to graduate from high school and while at the University of Minnesota Duluth, joined the sled hockey team. Hanna was good enough that she became a member of the Women's National Sled Hockey Team and played 4 years for them.
Now 28 years old and 12 years past her Osteosarcoma diagnosis, Hanna is happily married, working full time, and contributes to the cause of Pediatric Cancer by volunteering at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester , Minnesota.
