Sarcoma: Help fund discoveries to improve sarcoma treatment
Last updated: 17/08/2012
Why this research is needed
Soft tissue sarcomas are cancers that develop from the cells of supporting or connective tissue - such as fat, muscle, nerves and blood vessels. Around 2,300 children and adults are diagnosed with soft tissue sarcomas in England each year.
Around half of the people diagnosed with a form of soft tissue sarcoma in England will survive for more than 5 years after diagnosis.
We want to see these statistics improve even more and research is vital to saving more lives.
The impact of our work
Cancer Research UK is a major funder of sarcoma research in the UK. We fund a breadth of work that is relevant to sarcomas - from our fundamental lab research into understanding the biology of cancer, through to clinical trials
looking to improve treatments.
The work of researchers like Dr Beatrice Seddon, is essential to help more people survive this disease.
