July is Sarcoma Awareness Month

Raising Sarcoma Awareness and Understanding
July is Sarcoma Awareness Month. Sarcoma is a rare cancer of soft tissue and bone. Recognition of July as Sarcoma Awareness Month aids in raising the profile of this rare cancer. Increased awareness can lead to people receiving earlier diagnoses and better treatment. Sarcoma represents 15% of childhood cancers and less than 1% of adult cancers. It is estimated that 15,000 people will be diagnosed with Sarcoma this year. In a rare cancer such as Sarcoma it is important for us to work together.
