The passion behind Chords for Chordoma comes from lawyer and jazz musician, Steven Golick. In 2012, Steven was diagnosed with this very rare form of cancer that occurs in the bones of the spine or skull. With surgery and radiation therapy, he is currently cancer free, however chordoma returns. This is Steven’s way of giving back to other Canadians with chordoma and their circles of love, and the community of medical professionals who deal with this rare form of cancer.
Presented by the Canadian Chordoma Network. All net proceeds will go to the Canadian Cancer Society for chordoma cancer research.
