Research Fund

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.

Dr. Seth M. Pollack, the ONLY immunotherapy sarcoma researcher in the world!  In 2016, we supported his lab's basic science needs with a grant of $25,000.  Here's what he has to say;

"The tumor bank is absolutely critical. Without the data that the tumor bank has given us, I can think of at least 3 very promising clinical trials that we never would have been able to bring to Seattle. In terms of our own immunotherapy research, the tissue bank has allowed us to look at the expression of immunogenic antigens in patients' tumors, which is an absolutely essential part of our research effort."
