Since 1987, The Limb Preservation Foundation has provided funding for clinical and laboratory research regarding limb preservation, including the treatment of bone cancer, non-healing fractures, chemotherapy, and disease transmission during bone and tissue transplantation.
Foundation-funded research involving pediatric and extremity bone cancer continues at Colorado State University Animal Cancer Center. Osteosarcoma is the most common malignant bone tumor. It is the eighth most common form of childhood cancer. Until we find a cure, we will continue to be on the front lines of research, raising funds to support innovative research that will impact lives for generations to come.
Research conducted over the past 25 years has dramatically increased the survival rate of pediatric and adult bone cancer patients.
The patients, both human and canine, shown below are linked in a unique way. Each of them has been touched by your generosity, we share their stories so that others may go on to receive the help they need.
Since 1986, The Limb Preservation Foundation has provided funding for clinical and laboratory research regarding limb preservation, including the treatment of traumatic extremity trauma.
The patients, both human and canine, shown below are linked in a unique way. This two-way exchange is called translational medicine and is a powerful means by which we can obtain investigational treatment faster. Through our research collaboration with Colorado State University Flint Animal Cancer Center, we are funding and accelerating research that directly translates to improved treatments and outcomes for patients at risk of limb loss due to cancer, trauma, and infection.
