Austen's Army Foundation

We are a nonprofit organization located outside of Atlanta dedicated to spreading awareness of rhabdomyosarcoma, and raising funds to support research earmarked specifically toward treatments for this disease that minimize toxicity to patients and maximize success rates.  In the most basic of terms, rhabdomyosarcoma  is a type of sarcoma. Sarcomas are cancers that develop from connective tissues in the body, such as muscles, fat, bones, the linings of joints, or blood vessels. Rhabdomyosarcoma is the most common type of soft tissue sarcoma in children. 

Austen was diagnosed with embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma in 2017 at the age of 4. This is a disease we didn't even know existed. Within  a few weeks, she had spent numerous days and nights at the hospital, undergone a full hysterectomy and began an intense 24-week protocol of chemotherapy. 

Your contributions will enable us to help raise awareness of rhabdomyosarcoma and fund valuable research efforts into treatment protocols.
