ACS recognizes us

I'm thrilled to report that the American Cancer Society has added us to its calendar. It now recognizes July as Sarcoma Awareness Month. And it actually did it in July, but I've been sick, and am just now getting around to announcing it.

Here's just one reason this matters: This week, I was talking to someone at a cancer center who does PR, and I told her how sarcoma nonprofits have agreed on July. She asked if the month had been recognized officially. I had to tell her that I've yet to find a legislator willing to do this. When I said the ACS had recognized us, however, that was good enough for her.
