Local resources

Diagnosis and treatment experiences can differ from country to country. Our British Ambassador, Kate Mason, provided input for this section, drawing from her own experience as a chordoma patient. Gerald Fitz-Gibbon and Sylvie Leslie (Chordoma UK) also reviewed and provided input.

Please inform us if you are aware of any other local resources that may be helpful to others.

Educational resources

What should I do? If you or someone you know has chordoma, you’ve probably found yourself asking this question. It’s an important question to ask because, when it comes to treating chordoma, what you do — or don’t do — can have a major impact on your life. We developed the following chordoma educational materials to help you make informed medical decisions and get the best care possible for yourself or your loved one.
