Sarcoma Resources

Support groups or resources present information, provide comfort, teach coping skills, help reduce anxiety, and provide a place for sarcoma patients to share common concerns and emotional support. Whether you take advantage of the online support resources or visit your local support group, help is available. And although your cancer may be rare, know that you are not alone. At any one time, more than 50,000 patients, their families, caregivers, and doctors are fighting this disease.  The following online resources were helpful to Eric’s family:

Sarcoma Centers

The best offense is a strong defense and having access to the most accurate information and resources is key in your sarcoma fight. Because sarcoma is a rare cancer, it is important that patients see an oncologist specializing in sarcoma or visit a sarcoma center.  While this list isn’t intended to be a full representation, it does provide facilities who have experience with sarcoma.  If you know of a hospital or medical center not listed, we would love to hear from you.
