FACTOR is the first and only osteosarcoma research conference in the world. We bring the leading researchers,
clinicians, surgeons, patient families and OsteoWarriors (survivors, patients and siblings of OsteoWarriors and OsteoAngels)
together to Make It Better for those battling this disease. This work belongs to all of us.

Conference Objectives

Through a collaborative with all interested parties on advancing treatments and improving outcomes for patients with osteosarcoma, specifically:

  • Significantly improve osteosarcoma awareness and patient outcomes through collaborative disease management approach, clinical trials and dedicated osteosarcoma research.
  • Collectively brainstorm on challenges and come up with collaborative solutions to fast track.
  • Create a symbiotic bridge between the osteosarcoma medical community and the patient community for an improved understanding of patient challenges and solutions.
  • Evaluate funding needs for research and provide impetus to fundraising strategies.
  • Be a dedicated forum to review progress on an annual basis on various osteosarcoma disease management initiatives.

OsteoWarriors HQ

The OsteoWarriors HQ connects the kids and young adults who have lost friends, and Agents, It. Is. Awesome! It is also complimentary. OsteoWarriors are:

  • Warriors age 5-25 in treatment for osteosarcoma
  • Survivors of osteosarcoma
  • Siblings of OsteoWarriors
  • Siblings of OsteoAngels

Connecting the kids who have lost limbs, friends and siblings to osteosarcoma is one of the most important things we do.
To put the hospital behind them for a few days and connect with other kids from across the country who have been
through the same thing they have is really special.

The OsteoWarriors HQ is entirely complimentary, with thanks to the generosity of the Jeffries family.
