Funding Change-Changing Lives

Named Fund Honorees

Welcome to Rein in Sarcoma’s Named Fund Page. Named Funds represent a wonderful way to honor people diagnosed with sarcoma cancer. RIS Named Funds represent the entire sarcoma community of survivors, patients and loved ones who have passed away.

RIS Named Funds help sustain and support our mission to educate the public and medical community about sarcomas, support sarcoma patients and their loved ones, and fund research directed toward developing new treatments and finding a cure for sarcoma cancers.

Celebrate our Named Fund Monthly Honorees. We are sharing selected Named Fund stories monthly on our website and throughout Rein in Sarcoma’s social media.
