ABOUT THE FOUNDER

My name is Amanda Solomiany and I am currently 18 years old living in Atlanta, Georgia. I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in my right distal femur at the age of 16 on December 3rd, 2019. Upon beginning chemotherapy, I was shocked to discover that the standard treatment for osteosarcoma, MAP, has not been refined since the early 1980s. It is labeled as an "ancient disease" that is still misunderstood to this day. As a fighter myself, I became devoted to promote osteosarcoma's prevalence and cruciality in the world, especially in children and adolescents, and aim for a change in the current approach to this deadly disease.

I created The Osteosarcoma Society to spread awareness of osteosarcoma: the most common form of bone cancer in children and adolescents. My hope is to collect donations that will be directed towards funding more expansive research for the disease. It exists as the eighth most common childhood cancer and affects nearly 400 people under the age of 20 each year. While osteosarcoma is not as well known compared to other types of cancers, it is just as important and deserves to be recognized and acknowledged for changes to be made in its treatment regimen that will benefit future generations.
