I created The Osteosarcoma Society to spread awareness of osteosarcoma: the most common form of bone cancer in children and adolescents. My hope is to collect donations that will be directed towards funding more expansive research for the disease. It exists as the eighth most common childhood cancer and affects nearly 400 people under the age of 20 each year. While osteosarcoma is not as well known as many other types of cancers, it is just as important and deserves to be recognized and acknowledged for changes to be made that will benefit future generations.
This campaign is in memory of my best friend, Catherine Williams, who fought an extremely difficult battle against osteosarcoma for 13 months.
