With only 4% of government cancer research funding going to pediatric cancers, hospitals and institutions rely on medical grants given by foundations and the public. Ewing Sarcoma treatment has one of the oldest protocols, with the last working chemotherapy developed in 1970. The treatment is very demanding on the body, with patients often needing multiple rounds of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. You can help make a difference by donating so that we can provide research grants to help further advance Ewing Sarcoma treatment and ultimately find a cure!
Because childhood cancer protocols call for a hard regimen, children and families will often spend days, weeks, months, and years in the hospital while undergoing treatment. Planned events are often a special moment for kids who get to have an experience away from the hospital and just be kids. We plan on making these special moments for those who already have enough to worry about on their own. Your donation could help put a smile on a kids face and motivate them to spread their wings and have fun!
