How We Started
The Creation of SIDES
SIDES was created by local businesspeople a week after Sydney's diagnosis with an emphasis on assisting children and families in need affected by Ewing's Sarcoma. Shortly thereafter, SIDES developed a working relationship with The Hunstman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah. There are only four Ewing's Sarcoma labs in the United States. Huntsman is headed by Dr. Stephen Lessnick, possibly the world's foremost expert on Ewing's Sarcoma. We have established and funded the SIDES scholar for Ewing's Sarcoma research and are very pleased with the results of their work. It is our goal continue to sponsor a SIDES scholar to help research and hopefully find a cure for this disease as quickly as possible. With the continued generosity of people like you, SIDES will be able to do this.
