Noah Shohet

Noah Shohet was a smart, confident, and charismatic young man who lived life with unbridled joy and infectious positivity. He lit up a room, made friends easily, brought out the best in people, played the guitar, danced, told jokes, and made a mean taco.

At 19 years of age, Noah was away enjoying his freshman year at University of Michigan when he began having intermittent right knee pain. It was so minor he did not even mention it to his parents at first. Unfortunately, an x-ray done soon after showed an aggressive bone cancer, confirmed as Ewing sarcoma following a biopsy. After enduring limb salvage surgery and many months of chemotherapy, he was able to return to college. At 22 years old, 2 years after completing chemotherapy, routine scans revealed he had relapsed. He was determined to live life to the fullest and maintain his amazingly positive attitude while he endured more chemotherapy. Sadly, 5 years and 10 months from his initial diagnosis, on May 17, 2021, at the age of 25, Noah passed away.

Noah’s experience propelled his family to raise funds for Ewing sarcoma research so that a cure for this disease can be found. They will continue to support our efforts to find less toxic and more curative treatments for Ewing sarcoma.
