Did you know that An Extraordinar Limousine is an active participant in community charities? One foundation that we really love and would like to put a spotlight on is The Heather Brooke Foundation. The Heather Brooke Foundation is dedicated to research and treatment for patients with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer. Read on to learn more about this great organization.
What is Ewing Sarcoma?
Ewing Sarcoma is a type of bone tumor cancer that occurs mostly in children and young adults. It’s often difficult to diagnose because of its likeness to lymphoma. It also has characteristics of mesodermic and ectodermic origin, which further exacerbates the classification process. It usually occurs in children as they reach puberty and their bones begin to grow rapidly. Cancerous cells form on the bone or soft tissue of the pelvis, the femur, the humerus, the ribs, or the clavicle (collar bone). A child may begin swelling at the site of the tumor, accompanied by a high fever. After Ewing Sarcoma is diagnosed, the patient can undergo chemotherapy, radiation treatment, or have the tumor surgically removed.
How Does The Heather Brooke Foundation Help?
The ultimate goal of The Heather Brooke Foundation is to find a permanent cure for Ewing Sarcoma. The Heather Brook Foundation also contributes to finding cures for various other types of cancers with a focus on providing aid to child patients. The Heather Brooke Foundation began as a tribute to the memory of Heather Brooke Tepper, a young girl who succumbed to Ewing Sarcoma. Her family established the Heather Brooke Foundation to help other young children who are suffering the same plight. Not only does The Heather Brooke Foundation donate to research for a cure, they also provide financial assistance to families with victims of Ewing Sarcoma as well as provide information to the public about Ewing Sarcoma symptoms, research, and treatments. You can also find lots of information about Ewing Sarcoma on their website and in their blog.
