Ewing’s Sarcoma Project

Ewing’s sarcoma is a type of cancerous tumour that grows in or around one’s bones or soft tissues.

The harsh truth

Ewing’s sarcoma is a type of cancerous tumour that grows in or around one’s bones or soft tissues, and it is the second most common primary bone malignancy that affects individuals between the ages of 10 to 20 years. Treating this disease is resource intensive as it requires multiple procedures like radiation, chemotherapy, surgery and prosthetics. These together could take a minimum of 9 months to a year to get through.
KARO Ewing’s Sarcoma Project provide holistic support which includes funding the treatment, free accommodation, guidance, counselling, nutritional support and more.

Why KARO Ewing’s Sarcoma Project?

At KARO, we have instituted a special corpus for patients requiring treatment for Ewing’s sarcoma. We provide holistic support which includes funding the treatment, free accommodation, guidance, counselling, nutritional support and more, ensuring that their treatment is ongoing and never stalled for any reason.

KARO Ewing’s Sarcoma Project, have assisted over 298 patients as of March 2020.

The outcome

We have initiated a Patient Sarcoma Group (PSG) in association with Tata Hospital and local NGOs. In the PSG meetings, doctors, medical social workers and NGOs congregate and guide patients through their treatments and other related issues. With KARO Ewing’s Sarcoma Project, we have assisted over 298 patients as of March 2020, and the data collected from these patients has helped experts in their clinical research to improve treatments for the disease.
