Show Your Support for Chondrosarcoma Research and Clinical Trials

Planning is underway to support our upcoming International Chondrosarcoma Awareness Day for February 6, 2024.

Chondrosarcoma Awareness Day is dedicated to honor the legacy of Shayna Elise Kramer who passed away from this rare cancer in November, 2019. This February 6, would have been her 33rd birthday. It was Shayna’s wish to educate the public about Chondrosarcoma and support patients and their families suffering from this rare disease. For the fourth year the Chondrosarcoma Foundation is initiating an international public awareness campaign to support Chondrosarcoma Research and Clinical Trials. We are asking everyone to join us and do the following:

1. Get the Word Out. Join us in our efforts to educate the public about Chondrosarcoma, a rare bone and soft tissue cancer effecting an estimated 9000 people world-wide each year. Let your family, friends and colleagues know that February 6 is Chondrosarcoma Awareness Day.

2. Sign Our Petition. Get as many people as possible to sign our on-line petition supporting Chondrosarcoma Research and Clinical Trials. All we need is your name and e-mail address.

3. Post a picture. Post pictures of you, your family, friends and co-workers wearing something Yellow including a Yellow Ribbon, Wrist band on Social Media and use the hashtags: #cswecare #chondrosarcoma #chondrosarcomafoundation
