Angela’s Story

Angela's Story TOC

Meet Angela, a bone cancer survivor, and Dr. Stephen Withrow, founder and associate director of the Flint Animal Cancer Center. Bone cancer affects both dogs and children. Angela benefited directly from Dr. Withrow’s pioneering collaboration with human orthopedic surgeon Dr. Ross Wilkins perfecting a limb-sparing technique allowing people with bone cancer to avoid amputation.

First developed at CSU for veterinary patients, this technique has benefitted countless children – the population most often stricken with osteosarcoma.
