Welcome to My Personal Page
In memory of our daughter (Kelsey Hastings Golitz), we've created this page to raise funds for sarcoma research at the Cleveland Clinic Children's, and we hope you’ll consider joining the cause and make 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.
Critical research is conducted everyday at CCC for children with sarcomas, and none of that progress would have been possible without support from people like you and me. For instance, CCC is in the second phase of a trial evaluating the addition of certain antibodies to multiagent chemotherapy for patients with newly diagnosed metastatic Ewing Sarcoma.
Please join us as we support this very important research!
