THE REAL IMPACT OF CHEMO AND RADIATION

Chemotherapy and radiation are both powerful agents, which can kill cancer cells and even cure cancer. However, due to their power they also harm healthy cells. Unfortunately, this causes a number of negative side effects, which not only effect body, but also mind and severely impact quality of life. These side effects can occur right after treatment, as well as for years afterwards and even for a lifetime. Kyla knew the negative effects of chemotherapy and radiation all too well and while she knew these treatments were necessary, she also knew that having items to help reduce the side effects was critical. Kyla’s mission is to provide chemotherapy kits to alleviate some of the suffering and provide comfort. - more info

EWINGS SARCOMA PROGRESS

Ewings sarcoma is a rare type of cancer that typically affects about 200 adolescents each year. It is a cancerous tumor that grows in the bones or in the tissue surrounding the bones and in more severe cases the Ewings sarcoma can spread throughout the body. While treatment for Ewing sarcoma has improved significantly, the survival rate still only remains at between 50-70%. Our goal at Move Mountains is to help fund research to make the survival rate 100%. - more info
