Cancer impacts so many of us, either directly or indirectly. Please join us in the fight to end sarcoma.
Join us VIRTUALLY on May 31, 2020!
During the time of physical distancing, it is even more important that we stay connected. Taking Virtual Steps to Cure Sarcoma allows us to continue supporting a cause close to our hearts, but from any location. Our virtual celebration will take place during the entire month of May, culminating in an online event on May 31st. The online event will start at 10:00 AM and a link will be provided in advance.

Every dollar raised will still go DIRECTLY to the 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.
Who are we?
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.

Mission Statement: Raise awareness and funding to cure 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.
Our May 31, 2020 event has gone VIRTUAL!
