We are especially excited to have the talented "singing surgeon", Dr. Elvis Francois accompanied by Dr. William Robinson, both Mayo Clinic orthopedic surgery residents, who use their musical talents to inspire patients.

Following refreshments, we will hear from two Rein in Sarcoma supported sarcoma researchers about their cutting edge sarcoma research.

The Singing Surgeon

Jacalyn See, RDN, LD, a Mayo Clinic nutritionistwill provide useful nutritional information for cancer patients.

Beau Webber, PhD, Assistant Professor, Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology, University of Minnesota, will describe his work on "Identification of novel drivers of Ewing Sarcoma through engineered transformation of cells with differing levels of African admixture."

Kris Ann Schulz, MD of the Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, will describe results of her research project entitled "“Identifying Gene Fusions in Pleuropulmonary Blastoma.”

This will be an afternoon to find hope and support, to share and learn from others in the sarcoma community.
