Sarcoma Onkos Campaign

What does Sarcoma Awareness mean to you?

July is Sarcoma Awareness Month. Sarcoma, a type of cancer that occurs in the soft tissue and bones, occurs in 1% of adults with cancer, and 15% of children with cancer. It is among the most life-threatening cancers that children face. That is why ONKOS SURGICAL is committed to raising awareness of sarcoma and pediatric cancer through partnerships with organizations and regulatory agencies.

The ONKOS SURGICAL Sarcoma Awareness Graphic for the month of July signifies both sarcoma awareness (“yellow”) and hope (“sunflower”).

Throughout the entire month of July, ONKOS SURGICAL employees will honor those who have been affected by, and treat sarcoma by answering the question, “What does sarcoma awareness mean to you?”

Dan Librot | Senior Director, Portfolio and Patient Solutions | ONKOS SURGICAL

“Although sarcoma is a rare cancer for adults, it is one of the more common pediatric cancers. Early symptoms can be mistaken for growing pains, leading to late diagnoses and limited treatment options. Educating parents on early warning signs of sarcoma could lead to earlier diagnoses, better outcomes, and saving children’s’ lives.”

ONKOS SURGICAL

“In July, when most kids are excited about swimming, summer camps, camping outdoors, picnics, sports, running around with their friends, there are sarcoma pediatric in-patients who cannot experience any of those activities. They remain in hospital settings in hopes of a successful treatment plan. Bringing awareness is key to helping surgeons help patients with all the tools available for a successful outcome.

ONKOS SURGICAL

“The most heartbreaking amongst us to receive a cancer diagnosis are the sweet faces of children. For bone and joint cancers, the highest percentage of cases (26.4%) are diagnosed before the patient turns 20 years old. The median age at diagnosis is 23 years younger than overall cancer ages. Raising awareness of sarcoma can help to bring about research and prevention approaches to combat this harrowing disease.”

“While sarcoma is extremely rare this disease can be devastating especially in children. There have been great strides in both treating sarcoma and preserving function. These improvements have been led by a group of specialty centers throughout the United States that are focused on sarcoma. Sarcoma awareness and knowing where to go for treatment or a second opinion is critical for a successful outcome.”

“To me, sarcoma awareness means not just informing others about the disease and its impact on the lives of those affected, but also as a way to recruit in an effort to expand the team trying to solve the problem and improve the quality of life of sarcoma patients while doing so.”

Sarcoma Onkos Pediatric Oncology

ONKOS SURGICAL supports Pediatric Oncology at Hackensack Meridian Health

The capstone event for ONKOS Sarcoma Awareness Month was the donation of toys to the boys and girls of the Hackensack Meridian Health Hospital Pediatric Oncology Wing on July 31st. Employee and corporate support for the gifts resulted in over $600 in boxes and boxes of toys. The facility, champion of the Tackle Kids Cancer Foundation, is always in need of toys for their patients as they are cycled through the facility quickly and discarded in order to reduce infection rates in this immune depressed community. Members of the ONKOS Advocacy Committee were hosted by Amy Glazer, Director of Tackle Kids Cancer and Annual Giving, and Ellen Goldring, Chief of Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy at Hackensack. The group toured the impressive facilities including the out-patient playroom, infusion center, teen game room, in-patient party room, and even the Harry Potter room! The level of innovation, care, and support for the children battling cancer was empowering for the ONKOS team to see first-hand and we look forward to even greater support and partnership in the future.
