July Is Sarcoma Awareness Month: What Is Sarcoma?

By Admin at 12 Jul 2017

Although rare in adults, sarcoma is relatively common in children, accounting for 15 percent of childhood cancer cases. The American Cancer Society estimates there will be 12,310 cases of soft-tissue sarcoma diagnosed in 2016 (including in both adults and children). Since sarcoma is a rare cancer, many people are unfamiliar with the disease and have not been affected personally.

This July, take a moment to share a message via social media or speak with your friends and family about this relatively unknown condition.
