Lend a Hand Today!

June 5-10: 5 dedicated to lending a hand to sarcoma awareness

Over the next 5 days we have an ambitious goal – to raise $5,000 while raising awareness of sarcoma cancer. Join the Gimme 5 Campaign!

  • Donate $5+ at NWSsarcoma.org/Gimme5
  • Post an image or video of yourself giving someone five and share it on social media with #gimme5 #nwsarcoma

Gimme 5–You can make an impact today

Sarcoma doesn’t care if you’re 5 or 95!

"Our daughter was 5 when she died after fighting sarcoma over half of her life."

"My son was 15 when he was diagnosed…it ended his baseball career."

"I was 25 when I lost my leg to osteosarcoma."

"At age 45, my husband and the father of our three girls, received a terminal diagnosis."

"My mom was 65 and expecting her first grandchild when she died from sarcoma."
