The Sarcoma Alliance is proud to partner with the following organizations to address the unique needs of cancer patients, particularly those with rare cancers such as sarcoma.
SARCOMA FOUNDATION OF AMERICA
– Our Sister Site
The mission of the Sarcoma Foundation of America (SFA) is to advocate for increased research to find new and better therapies with which to treat patients with Sarcoma. The organization raises money to privately fund grants for Sarcoma researchers and conducts education and advocacy efforts on behalf of Sarcoma patients.
The Champions TumorGraft® technology involves implanting a piece of the patient’s tumor in mice in a manner that preserves the biological characteristics of the original human tumor. The TumorGraft model is then used to test drugs and predicts with >80% accuracy how a patient will respond1.
