Mission Statement

BeatSarcoma helps increase awareness about sarcomas, raise funds for research and assist with survivorship issues.

Description

- 20% of childhood cancers are sarcomas. They affect also many young adults. Sarcoma destroys so many lives before they have had time to blossom.

- Sarcoma gets less than 1% of cancer research funds - this is not enough. Sarcoma research is years behind compared to that for other cancers.

We raise funds to sponsor specific sarcoma research projects or patient initiatives.
a) We work closely with the medical community to select un-funded high impact projects.
b) Currently 100% of funds raised support sarcoma efforts . As we grow, we will be transparent about our expenses.
c) We fund programs hosted by leading non-profit research institutions.
d) We favor fundamental, translational and early clinical research as opposed to late clinical trials. The funding needs there are greater and the benefits far-reaching.

About Sarcoma:
Sarcomas are uncommon cancers that affect primarily children and young adults. Sarcoma research receives very little funding. Existing treatments, diagnoses and screening options are very limited and little progress has been made even in the past decade.
