I was just wondering if anyone else is a survivor of Ewings and has had a recurrence. I would like to talk about your treatments and how it affected your life. I currently am on a clinical trial with amazing results and would like to share it to others and possibly help out someone.

I was diagnosed with ewings in 1991 finished treatment in 1992 so to those newly diagnosed if you need a little inspiration from a 16 year survivor I would love to chat!I remember needing to hear as many survivor stories as possible at that time.

I was diagnosed with Ewings in 1988. Went through 2 1/2 years of Chemo and a cycle of Radiation treatments. This took care of the tumor. After 5 years was considered cured. Had no problems for 21 years. I was rediagnosed in Febuary 2008. Currently taking Chemo again and I have had a pretty big surgery. Willing to discuss if interested.

Hi,I finally got back to this sight and have read up on everyone. I was interested in your story as it was alot like mine. My tumor was on my 8th rib. I currently am going to San Antonio for a clinical trial. I'm getting amg479. In Dec. 06 I started it as the cancer was in my lungs and a lympenode was involved. After 1 treatment the tumors shrank by 60%. in 8 weeks time they seen no evidence of cancer. I still recive the amg every 3 weeks. There are no sideeffects from it as it is a human monocolonal therapy. I was wondering what type of chemo you are recieving? I am sure you had a long recovery from the surgery. They took out the tumors on my lungs back in 03, but when they came back in 06, the chemo wouldn't work anymore. This treatment saved my life. I will be in touch and best of luck to you and everyone else fighting this disease.
