Support

RIS_Color_StackedRein in Sarcoma serves as a major means of support for sarcoma patients survivors and those who have lost a loved one to sarcoma. These include:

 

  • Rein in Sarcoma Gatherings are held semi-annually in the fall and early spring. This is a unique and supportive environment to meet other persons with sarcoma, to share and gain support.
    • To learn more about Gatherings or to view sideshows of previous Gatherings, click here.
  • The Sarcoma Patient Starter Notebook was first developed and published in 2007. It has been highly praised and requests come in weekly not only from the Upper Midwest but throughout the country. It is free to sarcoma patients and a PDF of the book can be found on this website.
  • Sarcoma Family Picnics are held each July in conjunction with the Annual Rein in Sarcoma Event. The picnic  is free to sarcoma patients, survivors, loved ones and those who may have lost a loved one to sarcoma. For more information on this year’s event, click here. 
  • Social Networking opportunities are provided through our RIS Facebook Site. Our Facebook site provides a means to interact, learn and support others who are facing sarcoma.
  • National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship
