The mission of the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative is to improve the quality of life for people dealing with sarcoma. The Initiative increases public awareness of sarcoma, raises funds to award research grants, and provides support and timely information to sarcoma patients, their families, and medical professionals. These efforts are achieved through collaboration with numerous individuals and organizations that share a similar vision.
To Address the Challenges Presented by Sarcomas, the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative Seeks to:
- Publish the latest sarcoma information: The Electronic Sarcoma Update Newsletter (ESUN) is an online, peer reviewed journal that is published bi-monthly. It is accessed by physicians, nurses, patients and caregivers around the world. Much of this information has been organized in the Sarcoma Learning Center for our website visitors.
- Fund sarcoma research: The Initiative funds research targeted at finding a cure for sarcoma and research that attempts to develop more effective treatments than those currently available. Each research proposal is peer reviewed by leading sarcoma experts, and only promising studies receive funding. We hope that the results of these research studies will be stepping stones to finding a cure for sarcoma.
- Provide support for patients and families: The Initiative compiles relevant and timely online resources for patients and medical professionals. We provide personal responses to questions from patients and their families. And we coordinate the Team Sarcoma Initiative to bring communities together in support and awareness.
