It’s a family affair again this year as we walk to raise both awareness and dollars to fund research and trials that could save thousands of lives affected by Sarcoma every year! Rare diseases such as this do not get the attention and funding that other cancers receive. Sarcoma may be rare but it is aggressive and difficult to treat. Specialty treatment centers that can help those of us fighting this disease are few which means that patients and families must travel and be away from home and work for treatment. This puts additional burden on families already feeling the pressure and emotional stress of a fighting a life threatening disease.
I am thankful for the ability to walk in this fundraiser and pray for the chance to do this for many years! Every dollar contributed will be used to work towards that same opportunity for many more!
