What is Sarcoma?
Malignant (cancerous) tumors of the connective tissues are called "sarcomas." As cancers of the connective tissue, sarcomas develop fat, blood vessels, nerves, bones, muscles, deep skin tissue, tendons and cartilage. Sarcomas are divided into two main groups - bone tumors and soft tissue tumors. They are further classified based on the type of cell found in the tumor, although all sarcomas share certain microscopic characteristics and have similar symptoms.
What is Rein in Sarcoma?
The Karen Wyckoff Rein in Sarcoma Foundation is a resource for families touched by sarcomas, an uncommon and often lethal group of bone and soft tissue cancers that may strike children and younger adults, leaving an especially tender heartbreak. Often working in partnership with the University of Minnesota, RIS seeks to fund innovative, collaborative and high-impact research.
