Mission Statement

We see a world without Ewing’s sarcoma threatening the lives of our children and teenagers. As Ewing’s is a form of  cancer that, when diagnosed early, can be treated successfully, we believe there is a cure and that it can be found soon.

Ewing’s affects all sorts of people – it isn’t confined by race, religion, gender or social background. We want to bring teenagers and young adults across the country together to form a united front, taking on the challenge of raising funds to find the cure.

Mission Statement

“We aim to fund desperately needed research into the treatment of Ewing’s Sarcoma, offering the promise of a cure for this aggressive, but treatable form of cancer.

In doing this, we hope that less invasive treatments can be developed that will not only improve survival rates that are being achieved, but also cause less side effects, by working to support the best specialists in the world.

Ewing’s sarcoma prognosis is often related to detection and early diagnosis. We recognise that increasing public awareness of this often undetected cancer is crucial in our fight, and want to provide links and support for those affected to ensure no-one’s physical, social, emotional or psychological needs are ignored.”

How we aim to achieve our goals

We aim to achieve our goals by raising awareness of this cancer in high-risk groups, and then mobilising these groups to raise funds and spread the word throughout the country and globally. We also plan to co-ordinate fundraising activities to raise funds, and encourage others to get involved too.

To summarise we focus on:

  1. Fundraising
  2. Education and raising awareness
  3. Mobilisation of supporters and fundraisers
