Hyundai Hope On Wheels creates awareness for pediatric cancers and awards large grants to doctors and premiere research centers for life-saving research. This 19-year HHOW commitment awards grants in various categories to researchers at eligible Children’s Oncology Group member institutions. The highly-competitive grants are aimed at expanding the knowledge base of the disease and improving the standards of care. As an Orthopaedic Oncologist, Dr. Eward specializes in preserving and reconstructing limbs that have been jeopardized by a type of cancer called Sarcoma.
