Share Your Story
 

Each week SFA selects a story to feature on our online media platforms. We encourage you to share your story. 

  

Stories can be about your own experience with cancer, or that of a friend, family member, or loved one. Sharing your story can be such an inspiration to others who are dealing with sarcoma in their own life and remind us all of the urgency to find better treatments in order to make an impact on the devastation that sarcoma cancer brings. Let your experiences help others become involved with raising awareness.
