The Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund
The Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund is a meaningful partnership to us because it honors our friend Zach Sobiech’s life and helps others who are battling osteosarcoma like he did. The Fund, which is a part of Children’s Cancer Research Fund (CCRF), was created by Zach’s family as he battled osteosarcoma.
Zach always remained positive in the face of a terminal osteosarcoma diagnosis, and he inspired so many with his incredible outlook on life. Zach told us he wanted to go up into the "clouds," and we were able to take him on our very first Superhero Adventure on a helicopter ride in the clouds. Since 2012, the Fund has grown enormously and continues to support critical osteosarcoma research.
Love Your Melon is honored to continue partnering with the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund by providing $20,000 in 2019 to support innovative research. This Fund directly supports a top-notch team of researchers who are working to design more effective, customized therapies that minimize the devastating side effects of current osteosarcoma treatments.
