Steps to Cure Sarcoma Honorees
What is Steps to Cure Sarcoma?
We are current patients, families, friends, and the medical community involved in the fight against sarcoma. We are dedicated to building a community of support for those in need and working to raise awareness and funds to continue the fight against sarcoma cancers.
Where does the funding go?
Every dollar raised supports collaborative research network between the Penn Medicine, Penn Vet, and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). The collective team across these sites are bringing their unique skills and research talents to help children, adults and dogs with sarcoma.
What is sarcoma?
Sarcomas are rare cancers of the bones and soft tissues including muscles, blood vessels, fat, nerves, tendons and other connective tissues. They affect approximately 12,000 people each year in the United States. Bone sarcomas are more common among children, and soft tissue sarcomas are more common in adults. Pet dogs develop spontaneous sarcomas that are similar to human sarcomas.

Treatment requires a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical/pediatric oncologists. The Penn Sarcoma Program combines a compassionate team of expert physicians and veterinarians specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of sarcoma with a cutting edge basic and translational research team who are working to identify innovative treatments for this rare disease.
