Did you know that July is Sarcoma Awareness Month?
Help the Sarcoma Foundation of America (SFA) bring awareness to sarcoma research and find a cure in our time. Below are three ways that you can take action and make a difference!
Help a sarcoma researcher find a cure for this insidious disease. Funds donated will be used to fund a research grant! A $50,000 grant will be awarded to a researcher who has made it his/her mission to study sarcoma, a rare cancer that arises in the body’s connective tissue. SFA will recognize the top five individual donors on our website as we track the campaign’s progress.
The SFA, along with sarcoma doctors and other nonprofit organizations, urge you to show your support in bringing awareness to the more than 50,000 patients and their families struggling with sarcoma at any one time. A petition asking the Obama Administration to officially recognize July as Sarcoma Awareness Month has been created on WhiteHouse.gov. Please take a moment to sign this petition and share it with others – friends, family, advocates, and other supporters. In order for the White House to respond to the petition, 100,000 people need to sign on and help us send the message that more attention needs to be given to the needs of the entire sarcoma community. You can find the petition at https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/recognize-july-sarcoma-awareness-month**. It’s not too late to sign on!
