Ann Graham, CEO of MIB Agents–Make-It-Better-Agents–and osteosarcoma survivor, joins us to discuss the great strides in improving outcomes for osteosarcoma patients which her organization accomplishes as they move forward. The FACTOR Conference began last year in 2017 and was enormously successful in bringing top oncologists, clinicians, patient families and advocates together to improve research funding strategies, exploring new directions in research, and expanding the scope of their mission in caring for osteosarcoma patients.
On the eve of the 2018 FACTOR Conference, this deadly disease continues to affect approximately 800 children per year; it is ruthless in its action and tragic in effect on the afflicted and their families. Key to the discussion is the urgent need for greater awareness of the inadequacy of the medical research industry to adequately address the needs of the pediatric patient population with cancer.
