SaRC-Q: New hope for sarcoma patients
Sarcoma takes too many young lives.
Sarcoma is a rare but life-threatening cancer. Though it can occur at any age, it endangers an unlikely segment of our society—young adults ages 16–40. This cancer of the bone and soft tissue is hard to treat and sadly, patients are faced with very few treatment options. Because of its rarity, few resources have been put into developing new treatments. Until now.
Money raised to date
We won’t stand by while sarcoma cuts lives short.
Together, we can help more young people survive sarcoma
Sarcoma patients are faced with few treatment options, many of which only have a 50% chance of working. Often, the only option is limb amputation. Sadly, many young people lose their lives. SaRC-Q has three components to help young people survive:
SaRC-Q will connect sarcoma patients from across Quebec to specialists who can guide them through every possible treatment option, increasing their chances of survival.
More clinical trials mean more treatment options for sarcoma patients. SaRC-Q will work with pharmaceutical companies to bring the latest in sarcoma care to Quebec, giving patients new hope.
SaRC-Q’s website will help sarcoma patients learn more about their illness. With so many young patients, a reliable online resource is a must.
“With SaRC-Q, patients will have access to experts in treating sarcoma and innovative clinical trials that could save their lives.”
