The AnnFrances Tropea Foundation honours the memory of a courageous young woman who fought bravely to fight this deadly cancer.
Sarcoma is a malignant tumour that develops in the bone or in soft tissues such as fat, muscles, nerves, fibrous tissues or deep skin tissues. Osteosarcoma is a form of bone cancer that is prevalent in teenagers and young adults. According to the Canadian Cancer Society, osteosarcoma is the most common type of bone cancer in children.
