Leon Stone was 20 years old when he was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on the 1st May 2011. A young farmer from Esperance, Leon was an avid sportsman and in his fourth year of a Bachelor of Agricultural Science & Commerce at the University of Western Australia. After a phenomenally courageous 12 month battle Leon sadly passed away on the 18th May 2012. Leon’s passion was to promote awareness about Sarcoma, and in doing so touched many people across Australia.
Leon’s wish was that young people of future generations would have a better chance than he did, so in the last months of his life he started his Facebook awareness page Stoneys Steps Against Sarcoma www.facebook.com/stepsagainstsarcoma.
