February 7 - 8th, the Mud Dogs rode their snowmobiles in memory of Eric Skogman to raise funds for Rein in Sarcoma. You can still support the riders with your donation through February 18th, with every dollar matched up to $2500. See event details.
Attendees at the Rein in Sarcoma Winter Gathering were warmed with the opportunity to laugh, learn, and connect. They were entertained by an energetic ComedySportz duo and heard about exciting research happening at Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota Veterinary School of Medicine. See event highlights and photos.
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.
