Welcome to our new blog!

The Sarcoma Foundation of America (SFA) is always looking for new ways to bring attention to sarcoma, and the next step in our efforts to educate the world about this little known cancer is through our new blog.  We hope that this will become a place to share inspirational stories, highlight events, and blog about the needs of sarcoma patients to find new and better treatments.

So welcome to our inaugural post!  We couldn’t think of a better time to start this blog than in July – during Sarcoma Awareness Month.  While we work every single day to fulfill our mission  —  to advocate for increased research to find new and better therapies with which to treat patients with sarcoma and to conduct education and advocacy efforts on behalf of sarcoma patients — Sarcoma Awareness Month is a time to bring even more attention to a rare disease that often gets overlooked.

Help us spread awareness and find the cure in our time!

Here are a couple of quick things that you can to do to help:

  • Share our Facebook page with family & friends and ask them to “like” it.  We would love to reach at least 1000 followers by the end of the month.
  • Help trend “sarcoma” on Twitter by using hashtag #sarcoma in all of your tweets.  If you haven’t already done so, be sure to follow the SFA at @CureSarcoma.
  • Share the photo of a loved one affected by sarcoma on the SFA website. Photos will be highlighted in the slideshow on SFA’s website during Sarcoma Awareness Month. 
  • Register as an SFA member.  Membership is FREE!

Leave a comment and tells us about the kinds of things that you’re doing in July for Sarcoma Awareness Month.  We look forward to hearing what you are doing to increase awareness.
