Support for bone cancer patients and families at JMW backed event

This week is Bone Cancer Awareness Week. The consequences of bone cancer can be devastating and at JMW we have a wealth of experience, through the cases that we handle, of seeing just how patients are affected as a result of this condition.

 As part of the awareness week, this Saturday (14th October), the Bone Cancer Research Trust is holding its annual conference in Leeds, which will provide support to patients and families and information about the latest developments in treatment.  JMW is a headline sponsor of the event as we are committed to improving patient safety and ensuring patients affected by bone cancer have access to the best possible support and care.  

 The Bone Cancer Research Trust want to reach as many people as possible so they can raise the profile of this brutal disease. Primary bone cancer is an unforgiving condition that can occur in any bone in the body, but most commonly affects the long bones, such as the arms and legs. There are several types of bone cancer, with osteosarcoma and Ewing sarcoma being some of the most common. Symptoms may include joint pain, swelling, and fractures, with treatment typically involving a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. This is frequently dependent on the type and stage of the cancer. Unsurprisingly, early detection and treatment are crucial for better outcomes.

 The Bone Cancer Research Trust not only provides amazing support and awareness around bone cancer, it’s also the leading organisation in the research of a cure for bone cancer. Its work has also been at the forefront of many life-saving treatments.

 My team and I will be attending the conference on Friday so if you will be there, please do visit our stand to say hello. We’d be more than happy to discuss any queries you have in respect of legal needs.
