MIB FACTOR 2017 is a research conference of the leaders in the field of osteosarcoma including oncologists, researchers, patients and patient advocates. Osteo is a primary bone cancer affecting children and young adults. There have been no new treatments in osteo in over 30 years. This disease takes the limbs of the people it touches, and far too many lives.
In addition to 30 rounds of intensive chemotherapy, osteosarcoma patients suffer long term serious affects from these chemo agents (infertility, heart failure, hearing loss, bladder problems, etc), the loss or major rebuilding of the affected limb, and in far too many cases, death. This disease has been found in dinosaurs and Egyptian mummies, and in the kid next store. It is time to find better treatments and a cure for this aggressive disease.
Please help us Make It Better by donating any amount you can. We promise that we will use your generosity for good. There are no salaries paid to executives or anyone else here. Every cent goes toward our goal of better treatments and a cure.
