Our sweet little Allisen was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at the age of 12. She was in 7th grade and just starting out on her school’s dance team. Her life changed very quickly as we spent the next year in the hospital while she received multiple chemotherapy regimens, radiation, and multiple surgeries. She lost contact with friends and was no longer able to attend school. Dance would become a thing of the past. Fast forward to today and Allisen is a Freshman in High School. She is in the top 2% of her class and has aspirations of becoming a nurse to help other kids like her. She is 15 months no evidence of disease and living her life to the fullest! She is still on crutches and recently had another surgery on her leg, but she is a hard worker and has overcome so much! We could not be more proud of her and the beautiful woman she is becoming!
A world with less toxic, more effective treatments and a cure for osteosarcoma.
We are devoted to creating and instilling hope with and for our inclusive and collaborative osteosarcoma community. We do this through mutual trust, transparency and compassion.
