Warriors go to battle and #tacklecancer

If you’re going to tackle cancer, you’ll want to have some warriors on your team. That’s why we’re so proud to have the “Sarcoma Warriors”, one of our most dedicated teams at the Lombardi Walk/Run to Tackle Cancer in Milwaukee.

In the last five years, these warriors have raised nearly $65,000 in the fight against cancer.

They are led by Nicholas Webber, MD, who specializes in orthopedic oncology, including the diagnosis and treatment of primary benign and malignant tumors of bone and soft tissue, or sarcomas.

Motivating patients and their families 

Many of the warriors on his team are his current and former patients. Dr. Webber credits those “star patients” for taking on a very active role in recruiting their friends and family members each year.

“Not only do I love to see all of the patients and their families together, I like to see all the new faces at the event,” said Dr. Webber. “When I’m there it really is not as a physician, but as someone supporting the patients who are dealing with their disease on a day when we can all be a part of something bigger than ourselves.”
