2021 Virtual Chordoma Community Conference Series
We are excited to host a Virtual Chordoma Community Conference (CCC) Series featuring webinars about some of the most common quality of life challenges you face.
Based on our ongoing Chordoma Survivorship Survey’s initial findings, each webinar will focus on a physical, emotional, or practical challenge that commonly affects patients, caregivers, survivors, and co-survivors. These free, live, one-hour webinars will feature expert clinicians and specialists who specialize in the challenge at hand and can help you understand the issues, learn what treatments are available, and find out how to access them.
As part of the 2021 Virtual CCC Series, we will again host a 90-minute “Ask the Experts” webinar offering real-time answers to any questions you may have about your chordoma journey. At our in-person Chordoma Community Conferences, the Ask the Experts Q&A panel is always one of the most valuable and well-attended sessions, and last year’s webinar proved to be the same.

Responses to our ongoing Chordoma Survivorship Survey show that, depending on tumor location, as many as 57 percent of chordoma patients and survivors experience chronic pain. But you don’t have to accept pain as a normal part of having chordoma. Watch this 60-minute webinar featuring Maryam Jowza, MD, Staci Martin Peron, PhD, and Sasha Knowlton, MD, to learn more about the type of pain you might be experiencing, where to get help dealing with it, and how the Chordoma Foundation can support you.
