Ewing’s sarcoma is a primary bone cancer that affects mainly children and adolescents. It accounts for just one percent of childhood cancers and there are only 200 new cases diagnosed in the United States per year.
Ewing’s tumors are inherited and not caused by any sort of environmental factors. It is unknown why the cancer occurs.
Tanna is the daughter of Kevin and Lynnette Kingsbury of Letcher.
