Over the past eight years we have raised close to $600,000 to fund sarcoma research.  We are the primary funding source for MSTS when it comes to Sarcoma research.  Currently, we fund ~$100,000 in sarcoma specific grants per year:

  • Our proof of concept in supporting Sarcoma research occurred earlier this year when Dr. Bang Hoang our 1st grant recipient in 2017 received a $1.6 million NIH research grant to continue his Osteosarcoma research.
  • In 2021, we look to fund a $50,000 SarcomaStrong/MSTS grant and up to two $25,000 mentorship research grants.

Thank you to all our supporters, sponsors, donors, volunteers, participants and collaborators. Looking forward to many exciting announcements in 2022! Stay tuned…
