Amy’s Story –

A lump in her left thigh in late summer/early fall of 2014 turned out to not be a “nerve or muscle problem” that just needed time and rest. She was diagnosed with liposarcoma in October 2014 and started chemotherapy in November. After chemo, neutropenia, radiation, surgery, more tumors and subsequent treatments, she thought she was cancer free in November 2015.  Unfortunately, several months later, the cancer returned and after multiple treatments and surgery, she lost the battle to cancer on Dec 24th, 2016.

We have chosen to be a champion for Sarcoma Foundation of America, joining together with other like-minded supporters who want to see a cure for sarcoma.

Please help us reach our goal by supporting our fundraising efforts with a gift today. Your tax-deductible gift—any amount helps—will make a difference in the lives of many!

It’s faster and easier than ever to work together on raising money for the cure for sarcoma. Sarcoma, a rare cancer of the connective tissues, affects not only the 50,000 people living in the US with a sarcoma diagnosis but also their friends, families and neighbors.

We’ve chosen to work with Sarcoma Foundation of America in this fight. Sarcoma Foundation of America, recognized as a top charity by Charity Navigator and Guidestar, advocates for increased research funding to find innovative new therapies to treat sarcoma patients. 

Dollars raised help to privately fund research grants and to conduct education and advocacy efforts on behalf of sarcoma patients.

Any amount helps! We’re grateful for your support!
