Stomping Out Sarcoma > A Warrior's Way

"The hills are getting tougher at times..."

 A Fun Run/Walk, A Bike Ride Fundraiser, A Physical Fitness Plan, A Facebook Support Group, An "Awareness Month": What do they have in common? For this warrior, they mean fighting Sarcoma Cancer through new awareness and research, survivor support and fitness for the many battles ahead.

So "what is sarcoma?" is often the first question this warrior often hears. "You look healthy?" is often the second one (at least until my hair fell out during chemo). Sarcoma in this pilot's parlance or from the perspective of someone with boots on the ground, is a soft tissue (think muscle, fat, nerves) or bone cancer. It is rare in the adult population (less than 1% of all cancers) but unfortunately hits children much harder. It is often neglected in the research dollar efforts when compared to other cancers such as breast cancer. Many forms frequently spread to the lungs, liver, bone or brain with no effective chemotherapy medications available.
