diagnosed with osteosarcoma

Tamia – 13 -year -old female diagnosed with Osteosarcoma

Tamia was diagnosed with Tubular Sclerosis at birth, a genetic disease that causes benign tumors to grow in the brain that can present neurological symptoms such as seizures, intellectual disability, and developmental delay.

Tamia was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, bone cancer, in January 2020 the day after the passing of her beloved grandmother. She had pain in her leg found to be a tumor in her tibia and fibula. Surgery was performed to remove the tumor and bone and it was replaced with a prosthesis. Some time later an infection developed, and the prosthesis had to be removed followed by aggressive chemotherapy. She currently has a cast from thigh to foot, is bed bound, in a wheel- chair and is now awaiting reconstructive surgery.

Tamia lives with her mother Jessica and four siblings ranging from 21 to 2 months old. Jessica is a single stay at home mom where they live in Section 8 housing in Bridgeport. Jessica states that it has been an overwhelming challenge dealing with Tamia’s cancer and particularly during COVID but tries to maintain a positive attitude to find the strength and courage to be by her daughter’s side.

connecticut cancer foundation

Formerly known as the CT Sports Foundation, the CT Cancer Foundation is a non-profit IRS 501(C) (3) corporation chartered by the State of Connecticut whose mission is to financially assist cancer patients and their families and fund cancer research. Since its inception, CCF has provided financial assistance to Connecticut families stricken with cancer, for rent, mortgage, utilities, car payments, medical co-pays, food, medications, gasoline and transportation to and from hospital/treatment centers. In the past 34 year, the CT Cancer Foundation has provided over $6.4 million in financial aid to CT cancer patients and their families. CCF has provided financial assistance to Connecticut families stricken with cancer, for critical everyday living expenses such as rent and mortgage.

Our goal is to continue assisting as many Connecticut cancer patients as possible, and never have to turn anyone away.

Slide Our History It all started as a promise CONNECTICUT CANCER FOUNDATION (CCF) was founded in 1987 by Connecticut native John C. Ellis, a former catcher for the New York Yankees, who played Major League Baseball for thirteen years. John lost a sister, a brother, and a sister-in -law to lymphoma. He is a survivor of Hodgkin’s lymphoma that was diagnosed before John reached 40. Fortunately, John survived and CCF was born, with the idea of raising funds through sports with the help of sports celebrities. CCF has been operating for 33 years under the guidance of John’s wife, Jane G. Ellis, President and Executive Director of CCF.

CCF began its fundraising efforts in 1988, kicking off its first gala fundraiser with baseball legends, Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford and Billy Martin where Mickey stated: “I hope this Foundation goes on forever”. Over the years, many of MLB’s greatest stars, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, and Hank Aaron along with many others attended the gala to help build CCF’s success to date. CCF is one of the only organizations in Connecticut that provides financial assistance directly to cancer patients and is still going strong. For the past 34 years, through its CT Cancer Patient Assistance Program, CCF has granted over $6.4 million to more than 7,000 Connecticut families facing financial hardship that often follows a cancer diagnosis.

In 1992, CCF began supporting lymphoma research with a $10,000 grant to the doctor who saved John’s life, radiation oncologist Dr. Joachim Yahalom. The commitment to support research has continued for the last 28 years, providing generous funding of over $2.2 million to support ongoing cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and ILROG under the direction of Dr. Joachim Yahalom.
