Let's make Sarcoma Awareness Month official!

Sarcoma nonprofits are seeking U.S. senators to introduce a resolution naming July as Sarcoma Awareness Month. We have been working on this since 2007 and have been successful in getting recognition from the Sarcoma Alliance for Research through Collaboration, National Cancer Institute, American Association for Cancer Research, the American Society for Clinical Oncology and the American Cancer Society.

U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, D-FL, has introduced the resolution in the House in past years, to no avail. We’ve also tried White House petitions, but that didn’t work either. That’s why we’re focusing on the U.S. Senate this year.

We would be grateful if you would contact your U.S. senator! Here’s the suggested wording for the resolution:


A resolution declaring July to be Sarcoma Awareness Month

WHEREAS, Sarcoma is a cancer of connective tissues, such as nerves, muscles, joints, fat, bones and blood vessels, and it can arise anywhere in the body; and 

WHEREAS, the American Cancer Society estimates 13,040 cases of soft-tissue sarcoma will be diagnosed this year, with 5,150 Americans expected to die from it. 

WHEREAS, 3,450 new cases of bone sarcomas are estimated for this year, with 1,590 deaths.
     
WHEREAS, 1 percent of the cancers diagnosed in adults and 20 percent of cancers diagnosed in children each year are sarcoma; and  

     WHEREAS, More than 50 subtypes of sarcomas have been identified; and

WHEREAS, Nonprofit sarcoma organizations want to raise awareness in hopes that more patients will get earlier diagnosis and treatment, and these organizations have agreed upon July as Sarcoma Awareness Month; and

     WHEREAS, the National Cancer Institute, the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the American Association for Cancer Research, the American Cancer Society, the Sarcoma Alliance for Research through Collaboration, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and many others recognize July as Sarcoma Awareness Month;

NOW, THEREFORE,

Be It Resolved by the U.S Senate: 

That the Senate recognizes July as Sarcoma Awareness Month.
