I'm new to this group, but not to pediatric cancer.  Unfortunatly, my daughter has faced the beast twice in her short 8 years, 1st a battle with leukemia and now Rhabdomyosarcoma.  Rhabdo is a scary animal and is much different than ALL.  I would be really interested to talk with anyone who's child is experiencing a second cancer, particularly rhabdo...

Thanks for the info about the Everday Sarcoma Heroes project. Besides my son who has been in remission almost 4 years now from osteosarcoma, I am inspired by a friend who is in her thirties now who had it when she was a teen. Both are walking on our team "Hope for Kids" in our Omaha CureSearch Walk on June 5th.

It's good to hear that there is a support group for Sarcoma Heroes. I wish I knew of this group when my son STeven was diagnosed. My son was diagnosed with stage four osteosarcoma March 2006 in his spine. Although he survived the treatments and went into remission. In November 2008 he was diagnosed with Secondary AML. He had a Bone Marrow Transplant in March 2009. He is officially in remission! Thank God.
I would love to participate in Sarcoma Awareness Week, but hopefully, all will be well, and our family will be on a vacation:)
Please keep me posted on upcoming events.
God Bless.

Tell us who has changed your world -- the Everyday Sarcoma Heroes project. Everyone who has dealt with sarcoma knows a hero or two. Heroes support, encourage and inspire us in extraordinary ways. Just when we need them most, they are there. They challenge us, comfort us, and give us hope.

The Team Sarcoma Everyday Heroes competition invites you to tell us about your hero. Entries will be published at the Team Sarcoma website, and three winning submissions will be chosen. A donation will be made to sarcoma research in honor of each winner’s hero, and each winner will choose which type of research their prize will fund.

The deadline for submissions is June 1, and everyone who has been touched by sarcoma is invited to participate. Visit and click on “Tell us about your hero!”

Please spread the word about this competition within the sarcoma community. Would you please consider sending a personal note to some of the sarcoma families that you are in contact with suggesting that they participate as well and post it on your blog, website, etc. to distribute it far and wide? We would like to hear stories of Everyday Sarcoma Heroes from all over the world.

Dear Melissa,
Hello Melissa. I wrote on your wall also, but not sure if you will see that comment.... I am truly sorry to hear that Chase has relapsed with a new cancer. It is very, very scary but believe in your heart he will be okay again. Vinny (my 5-yr-old) had Rhabdomyosarcoma in the base of the skull last year that spread from the tongue, eyes, and into the Left Temporal Lobe of the brain. Rhabdo is the same family as Osteosarcoma. Osteo is the bones, and Rhabdo is in the muscles and soft tissues. Vinny has been CANCER FREE for 6 months, but they say he does have a very high chance of relapse due to the brain radiation and location and Anaplasia last time. I do know a lot about the disease... and do have several friends with Osteosarcoma - most of them are teens. Two of them have had it once, two have relapsed 2x with it, and one has relapsed 3x with Osteo and AML. They are all still alive and doing well. I am also in the Rhabdo-list serv that has a lot of info on Sarcomas. If you want to write, my e-mail is and Vinny's site is
