Vision Statement

  • The Ewings Cancer Foundation of Canada was founded by a mom who made a promise to her dying son that someone would do something about the lack of knowledge and tools to save the lives of Ewing sarcoma sufferers. In 2008 she did just that and put together a team of dedicated volunteers who annually raise the necessary dollars and encourage others to fund study grants into Ewing-specific research for the first time in Canada. The Ewings Cancer Foundation of Canada is committed to unlocking the mysteries of Ewing sarcoma which will ultimately lead to the cure.
