TeamJF was established in 2017 by Julian’s friends and family after he fought and lost a year long battle with osteosarcoma. Julian was an All-American Swimmer and Collegiate Water Polo player when he was diagnosed at age 19. Unfortunately, Julian’s story is not uncommon. That’s our reason for being – to raise money to fund promising research that will save the lives of other children and young adults.
The medical protocol for osteosarcoma treatment had not advanced or changed in over 30 years. With every donation to TeamJF, you are helping to fight for change.
