Sarcomas cancers are rare and often aggressive cancers that attack the body's connective tissues or bones. It is often diagnosed too late for proper treatment. Sarcoma is the third most common form of cancer in children and young adults.

When you read the State of Minnesota Proclamation, you will learn that Rein in Sarcoma has launched a major educational initiative to raise awareness and educate the public and the medical profession about sarcoma cancers. This is in collaboration with Children's Minnesota, The Mayo Clinic, the University of Minnesota, Regions Hospital and HealthPartners.

The good news is that early diagnosis and proper treatment of sarcoma tumors could lead to increasing survival rates by as much as 20% - which would SAVE THOUSANDS OF LIVES!!!
