Our mission is to eradicate Ewing sarcoma, today, tomorrow, and until it’s gone.
In November of 2009, 16-year old Anna Basso was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma, a bone and soft tissue cancer that primarily affects children and young adults. In an effort to heal her body and encourage her spirit, the 1 Million 4 Anna Foundation was established. Family, friends, and complete strangers pledged to pray for Anna every day at 12:12 PM, and over a million prayers were said in her name. Though Anna’s fight lasted 18 months, her legacy will continue forever.
One in 285 children will be diagnosed with cancer each year – and while we pray that it isn’t, tomorrow, it could be your child. Each pillar of the Foundation’s three-part mission is aimed to raise awareness and ultimately, find a cure. Ewing sarcoma is an incredibly isolating disease; families are thrust into a world of unknowns upon diagnosis. The Foundation has developed a loving, comforting, and supportive community to aid families throughout, and beyond their battles.
Our mission is to eradicate Ewing sarcoma. We remain vigilant to the needs of suffering adolescents and their families. We provide university scholarships for students who have battled, or continue to battle, the disease. We fund promising Ewing’s research. Our commitment is to empower young cancer survivors and warriors in varying stages of their journeys through inspiration, education, and eradication.
Since 2012, the Foundation has:
- Awarded more than $600,000 to promising Ewing sarcoma research including a $250,000 grant in December of 2016, establishing a formal Ewing Sarcoma Research Program at UT Southwestern Medical Center Dallas.
- Presented collegiate scholarships to nearly 200 Ewing sarcoma survivors and warriors totaling more than $500,000.
- Offered financial support to more than 100 families affected by Ewing sarcoma.
- Shared 100’s of personalized spirit-lifting packages to young warriors and their families all over the United States.
