About the Osteosarcoma Collaborative

Educate • Fund Research • Cure

If you have found this page, then it’s likely that you or someone you love has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. We get it, it’s a lonely place. We are families and friends of osteosarcoma warriors, thrivers and angels. This organization is what we were looking for when we were in your shoes, and that’s how it started. Take a look around this site, visit the Osteosarcoma Information FaceBook page. The standard care of treatment for osteosarcoma has not changes in nearly 40 years, we are here to change that.

“Osteosarcoma sometimes takes a limb to check you out.
Then, if it likes you, it takes the rest.”
