Cancer impacts so many of us, either directly or indirectly. Led by Kristy L. Weber, MD, the Penn Sarcoma program has developed a collaborative basic/translational research program between Penn Medicine, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and Penn Vet. This team is focused on developing new approaches to diagnosing and treating pediatric and adult bone and soft tissue tumors including Ewing sarcoma and osteosarcoma. The ultimate goal of the research is to develop better therapies, improve cure rates and minimize treatment toxicities for patients with malignant bone and soft tissue tumors.
Steps to Cure Sarcoma includes patients, families and friends. We are dedicated to building a community of support for those in need and working to raise awareness and funds to continue the fight against sarcoma cancers. Every dollar that is raised will go directly to sarcoma cancer research and treatment. Please join us in the fight to end sarcoma cancers.
