Together we are building a unique community of sunshine, hope, and music. Our purpose is to identify and support cutting-edge research aimed at finding a cure for Ewing's Sarcoma and other forms of pediatric bone cancer. In targeting such rare and underfunded childhood and adolescent diseases, our contributions can transform the field and have a significant impact on the lives and life chances of affected children and their loved ones.

We invite you to join our community of hope by donating, volunteering to host one of our "Parties with a Purpose," signing onto our mailing list, attending our sponsored events and enjoying our songs of hope. Together we will spread the sunshine and find a cure.
