2022 Compassionate Care Award Nomination
Nominate someone for the Compassionate Care Award!
Every day, navigators are making a difference in the lives of sarcoma patients. SFA is excited to honor these men and women with the Compassionate Care Award at the 2022 Stand Up to Sarcoma Gala.
Stand Up to Sarcoma is the flagship event for the Sarcoma Foundation of America (SFA), featuring extraordinary honorees, tributes to sarcoma cancer survivors and advocates, and recognizing important advances in science and research.
Each year the event highlights outstanding sarcoma advocates with the Courage Award, celebrates a patient/nurse navigator for his or her outstanding contributions to patient care, support and education with the Compassionate Care Award, honors a researcher or doctor advancing groundbreaking research with the Nobility in Science Award, and recognizes an organization or person providing hope to patients with the Vision of Hope Award. These international awards are the highest honor SFA bestows and are awarded each year at the Stand Up to Sarcoma Gala.
The Compassionate Care Award recognizes a patient/nurse navigator (clinical/nurse, community health worker, social worker in the role of a navigator) for his or her outstanding contributions to patient care, support and education. Sarcoma is a challenging disease to navigate alone, and many sarcoma patients need additional support. Navigators assist patients from diagnosis to survivorship, helping them understand their condition and treatments as well as manage side effects; coordinate care among medical specialists; and connect patients to available community resources to overcome barriers to care. They can also help patients manage their psychosocial needs, such as work, school and home environments; relationships; mental and emotional health; and financial concerns.
SFA recognizes the important role these individuals play in the sarcoma patient journey and would like to celebrate their outstanding support of sarcoma patients.
