Every July the sarcoma community comes together to acknowledge Sarcoma Awareness Month and pay tribute to those impacted by sarcoma, advocate for those living with sarcoma, raise awareness of the red flags, and raise money for sarcoma research. 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.
