July is Sarcoma Awareness Month
Ready for the Fight? We are. Thanks to everyone for tuning on to Real World, Real Talk, Sunday, July 28th at 6pm (CST). Lives and hearts were touched as we raised awareness about Sarcoma Cancers.
July is Sarcoma Awareness Month to the medical community. Sarcoma is a cancer of connective tissues, such as nerves, muscles, joints, fat, bones, and blood vessels, and it can arise anywhere in the body. More than 13,000 people in the United States were diagnosed with sarcoma last year, more than 5,000 died, and 50,000 are struggling with the disease at any one time.
One percent of the cancers diagnosed in adults and 15 percent of cancers diagnosed in children each year are sarcoma with more than 50 subtypes of sarcomas being identified. The National Cancer Institute recognizes that sarcoma is often misdiagnosed and underreported.
We designate July as National Sarcoma Awareness Month to raise awareness of the disease and encourage more individuals to get properly diagnosed and treated.
