How will we END SARCOMA?
We start by acknowledging the problem; due to the rarity, and complexity of the disease, sarcoma treatments are limited, and the research seeking to improve them is underfunded.
At the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation, we are working to change that. Our current research strategy is direct funding to our most promising sarcoma-focused researchers. Every year, we are able to support these great researchers with gifts of more than $50,000, thanks to the generosity of supporters like yourself.
