About CHEMOWARRIOR

It started as a nickname.

A father, watching his young son struggle with an aggressive form of bone cancer known as Ewing's Sarcoma, coined the phrase. Bret Sidler told his son Eli that he was brave in facing cancer and the all the debilitating chemotherapy treatments. He called Eli a "chemo warrior".

Eli was diagnosed with the disease at the age of eight. His mother, Sue Sidler, said he never thought of himself as particularly brave. But, she said, he liked the nickname and took pride in it. Eli was 16 when cancer took his life. 

Bret and Sue created CHEMOWARRIOR Foundation in 2014 to raise awareness and to raise funds for research into treatment of Ewing's Sarcoma.
