What is Sarcoma Cancer?

Sarcomas are rare cancers of the bones and soft tissues including muscles, blood vessels, fat, nerves, tendons and other connective tissues. They affect approximately 12,000 people each year in the United States. Bone sarcomas are more common among children, and soft tissue sarcomas are more common in adults. Advanced imaging techniques are used to evaluate the tumor characteristics and accurately pinpoint their location. Image-guided biopsies are performed by musculoskeletal radiologists and the diagnoses determined by experienced musculoskeletal pathologists. Pet dogs develop spontaneous sarcomas that are similar to human sarcomas. The Veterinary and Medical schools work together to incorporate canine models into the Penn Sarcoma Program to accelerate understanding sarcoma pathogenesis and to bring effective therapies into the human and veterinary clinics.


Research Funding for Rare Cancers

Treatment requires a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical/pediatric oncologists. Current and future efforts are focused on developing personalized molecular targets in individual cancers. The Penn Sarcoma Program combines a compassionate team of expert physicians and veterinarians specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of sarcoma with a cutting edge basic and translational research team who are working to identify innovative treatments for this rare disease.

Join us in the FIGHT by taking Steps to Cure Sarcoma!

Cancer impacts so many of us, either directly or indirectly. Please join us in the fight to end Sarcoma Cancers. This can only happen with significant funds for necessary and valuable research. Every dollar that is raised will go directly to the Abramson Cancer Center and be used for Sarcoma Cancer research and treatment. We have a collaborative research network between the Abramson Cancer Center at Penn Medicine, the Penn Veterinary School, and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). The collective team across these sites are bringing their unique skills and research talents to help children, adults and dogs with sarcoma.

Please take steps with us to cure sarcoma!
