July is Sarcoma Awareness Month.
Sarcomas are rare cancers that develop in the bones and soft tissues. About 2000 Australians are diagnosed with a sarcoma each year.
Bone sarcomas are more common in children, teenagers and young adults. Kids like Zoe (featured below), who was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma at only two years old.
We are proud to be supporting the Australian Bragg Centre for Proton Therapy and Research being built in Adelaide, which will soon provide a more targeted radiation treatment option for children and young people with sarcomas and hard-to-access cancers.
This North Terrace facility will be the first of its kind in the southern hemisphere!
