In Memory of Kelsey Hastings Golitz
In memory of our daughter (Kelsey Hastings Golitz), we've created this page to raise funds for sarcoma research at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and we hope you’ll consider joining the cause and making a donation.
Each year, nearly 70,000 adolescents and young adults are diagnosed with cancer in United States (Critical Mass statistics). Sarcoma Cancer which is more prevalent in children (15%) as opposed to adults (1%) is one of the most aggressive cancers, starting in the bones or soft tissue and spreading quickly to the lungs if the tumor is not contained and reduced. Treatments include at least 8 months of chemotherapy (many of the chemo therapies have been used since the '70's), amputation and radiation.
Many of the most important breakthroughs in sarcoma cancer research and treatment have been brought to light at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and none of that progress would have been possible without support from people like you and me. For instance, Jan 22, 2018 - Some of the first clinical trials testing immunotherapy for the treatment of sarcoma are now under way at MSK.
Please join us as we support this exciting new research!
