Sarcoma Awareness Month
July is Sarcoma Awareness Month
Why do we have a Sarcoma Awareness Month? Simply, sarcoma is still considered to be the “forgotten cancer.” Efforts to encourage research and drug development are made more challenging due to a lack of awareness and understanding. How as a community do we raise funds for vital research if people don’t know that this cancer exists?
Though the Sarcoma Foundation of America works tirelessly every day to raise awareness, during Sarcoma Awareness Month we aim to further highlight the extraordinary challenges that sarcoma patients face and the need for more sarcoma research and better sarcoma therapies. Please join us in our efforts and pledge to bring awareness to your community!

Why the SFA is Needed
Sarcoma affects more than 50,000 Americans and the families and friends who are by their side. It can touch lives no matter what age and at any location on the body. As the Billeck family shares, unifying our voices as a community is important.
