Sarcomas are a rare form of cancer, affecting patients of all ages. Many of these sarcomas arise in otherwise healthy children and young adults and inflict a tremendous toll on both the patient and their family. The Division of Orthopedic Oncology at Montefiore Medical Center is dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with both soft-tissue and bone sarcomas. In addition, our laboratory seeks to better understand how these tumors arise and in turn, how to better treat them. Together with the Sarcoma Strong Initiative - we are hosting this event to raise funds for the ongoing fight against sarcoma. Help us raise funding to support both the Musculoskeletal Tumor Society through the Sarcoma Strong Initiative - as well as to support our own Musculoskeletal Oncology Laboratory. Because sarcomas are relatively rare - there is much less available funding for this type of cancer. Therefore - your support can make a big difference. Join in the fight and help support our efforts!
DAY OF EVENT DETAILS:
We will assemble at 8:00 AM.
