Chiara’s Story

When Montefiore’s cancer specialists discovered Chiara’s agonizing leg pain was misdiagnosed, and, in fact, a rare form of bone cancer known as Ewing Sarcoma, her future at the Washington Ballet was put into question. Montefiore’s specialists not only treated Chiara, but paved the way for her triumphant return back to center stage.

Louanne’s Story

New York Yankees fan Louanne Mitchell dreamed of taking part in the team’s winter fantasy baseball camp. She was a picture of good health when she noticed a small bump on her leg that her dermatologist removed and sent out for routine testing. The results were shocking – metastatic malignant melanoma.
