On January 27, 2011 Eric Merkley was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. An aggressive cancer that we hope and the doctors to this point seem confident that is contained to one spot on his leg. Prognosis is good. Treatments and recovery will be long and painful.

Footloose (2011) Poster  Last night we previewed Footloose and as I was dancing in my seat, Eric came into the movie and immediately took off his leg.  I had to laugh because he was truly "Foot Loose".  :) 

Eric attended open court with the Salem Hills High Basketball players and even though he knows that it will be a long hard row to get into shape to compete competitively, he has the determination to do so!  So off he goes.  Today we will be going back into the sports Physical therapist to help with this process.
