What is the Sarcoma and Bone Cancer Research Foundation Association?
The Sarcoma and Bone Cancer Research Foundation was formed in 2004 as an alliance of doctors dedicated to the treatment of the diseases. It became incorporated as an Association in 2008.
They share a common goal-to promote research into the causes and treatment of sarcomas and bone cancers and to provide support to those suffering.
Why is a Research Foundation needed?
Current treatments are intensive, can be disabling and have no guarantee of success.
Despite the current intensive treatment programs only approximately 50% of sarcomas are cured. Treatment itself can be associated with significant ongoing disability.
Research into the causes of these diseases may promote the development of new therapies.
It is hoped that in a significantly proportion of those affected a cure can be achieved with a reduced need for debilitating chemotherapy, radiation therapy or surgery.
