A voice for epithelioid sarcoma
Epithelioid sarcoma is a rare, slow-growing type of soft tissue cancer. Most cases begin under the skin of a finger, hand, forearm, lower leg or foot, though it can start in other areas of the body.
Our oncology experts provided seamless, integrated care to Nick Saleum, who was only 26 when diagnosed with epithelioid sarcoma.
