In Memory of Cailin Cannella

On September 18, 2017 Cailin Capri Cannella died from osteosarcoma. She was 14 years old. "Her radiant smile and warm heart reminds us to live our lives as if each day is a blessing. She will be missed every day but she will live in our hearts forever.”

Basket Trial Update from Theresa Beech

"Although for many, this trial comes too late, the participation of so many osteosarcoma families in this registry has been absolutely critical to changing how osteosarcoma is thought of by the docs and researchers. Without everyone’s participation, my research would not be possible, and this trial would not be happening."


“We must choose to cure osteosarcoma not because it is easy,” she said, paraphrasing President John F. Kennedy, “but because it is difficult.”
