We will start with a fun and highly entertaining performance from the comedians of ComedySportz

Using the best of improvisation, ComedySportZ will provide clean, positive entertainment that is guaranteed to please even a tough crowd like us.

Following wonderful treats, we will hear from two nationally respected sarcoma researchers on the latest in cutting edge sarcoma research.

Dr. Mark Truty, a surgeon and researcher at Mayo Clinic, will describe breakthroughs in PDX (Patient-Derived Xenografts) for individualized care in advanced sarcoma and the hope that it will lead to new and effective therapies for many sarcoma cancers.

Dr. Jaime Modiano, of the U of MN School of Veterinary medicine, will describe the major advances in treating canine sarcomas and their direct link to treating human sarcomas.

This will be an afternoon to find hope and support, to share and learn from others in the sarcoma community.
