Rally Kid Addi, Beating Bone Cancer


Bone cancer can be classified into two type: Osteosarcoma and Ewing’s sarcoma. Of the two, osteosarcoma is the more common type and typically presents itself in the bones surrounding the knee. Ewing’s sarcoma generally affects the bones of the ribs, pelvis, upper arms and thigh. These bone cancers are most common in adolescents and young adults.
