rugs in chordoma cell lines in an attempt to identify potential treatments, Sommer said.

"Scientists are excited about the prospect of discovering new treatments for chordoma," she said.

And patients like Daniel Alter are hopeful.

Last month, Daniel talked publicly for the first time about his journey since his diagnosis. Until the creation of the foundation, Daniel had only met two young people with the disease. Both have since died.

Daniel's sights are set on the future. And he's hoping that researchers will learn to understand why the bone cancer takes hold and find ways to increase the odds of survival. At the conference in June, he met other patients with chordoma, and told them what he tells himself every day:

"Live your life and don't worry about it."
