We had a VIP visitor on Friday, Josh. Josh's life has by chance been touched by Ewing's sarcoma and he is now a survivor. Josh told his story in his own words for our StoryCorp project with the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation: to hear his interview, or his mother April's perspective via her interview, click here.
We appreciate patients stopping by the lab, and the accountability that this brings. Josh's Dad gives the universal perspective, "Every parent around the world wants one simple thing…to see their kids grow up." It's our intention to find those new treatments that Give Back Childhood.
