The Limb Preservation Foundation continues to fund cutting-edge research programs with the goal of finding the cure for bone cancer and other extremity diseases.
Since its creation in 1986, The Limb Preservation Foundation has provided funding for clinical and laboratory research regarding limb preservation including the treatment of osteosarcoma (bone cancer) and non-healing fractures, chemotherapy and disease transmission during bone and tissue transplants. Foundation funding supported research has led to the development of osteosarcoma treatment protocols that have dramatically increased the survival rate of pediatric bone cancer patients. Our research involving pediatric and extremity bone cancer continues at Colorado State University Animal Cancer Center.
The Limb Preseravation Foundation and Colorado State University Flint Animal Cancer Center are at the forefront in advancing research and accelerating improvements for individuals facing life- and limb- threatening conditions through the work provided by the Ross M. Wilkins, M.D. Limb Preservation University Chair in Musculoskeletal Biology and Oncology.
