The Sarcoma Alliance holds events to raise awareness, promote involvement, and raise funds. The following are some of our larger and more popular events.

2020 Sarcoma Exchange

The Sarcoma Alliance is presenting the 3rd Sarcoma Exchange October 3-4, 2020, an educational event dedicated to sarcoma patients and the people who support them. Given the current global COVID-19 pandemic, the Sarcoma Exchange will be virtual this year in order to protect everyone’s health and well-being. The Sarcoma Exchange is a special meeting designed for sarcoma patients, survivors, caregivers, loved ones, patient advocates, and medical specialists to exchange information about current therapies and available resources, and develop relationships with others in the sarcoma community. Although the virtual nature of this event means that people will not be connecting in person, we hope that it will allow even more people across the country (and globe!) to attend. Registration for the event is currently open! If you are interested in sponsoring the Sarcoma Exchange, please contact Alyssa O’Driscoll at [email protected].

Looking forward, the 4th annual Sarcoma Exchange will take place July 16-18, 2021 at the Hyatt Regency LAX in Los Angeles, CA. We hope to see you online in October and in person next year!
