'Coop's Sprint for Sarcoma'
to aid sarcoma research


Why is there a need for a global Sarcoma Awareness Month?  It’s because sarcoma is still considered to be the “forgotten cancer.” 

Efforts to encourage research and drug development are made more challenging due to a lack of awareness and understanding of this cancer. 

So how do we raise funds for critical research when a large number of people don’t know this cancer exists?

There are many outstanding sarcoma organisations in Australia working tirelessly every day to raise funding and awareness, and those who provide treatment, care and scientific research.  

Each of these organisations aim to further highlight the immense challenges that sarcoma patients face and the dire need for funding to facilitate the clinical research required to achieve better treatment therapies and more favourable survival outcomes.

We encourage you to read our social media posts throughout July, as we will be going back to basics  to educate, create an awareness and start a conversation about sarcoma.  

Early diagnosis saves lives, and the life that is saved could be yours, or that of someone you love.
