Research Fund

Many sarcoma patients face outdated chemotherapy protocols and underfunded research, and little in the way of new and updated treatments.  Northwest Sarcoma Foundation's board of directors established a research fund of $100,000 in January of 2008, in hopes of raising $1,000,000 to fund newer and better treatment options for sarcoma patients.  In 2013 and 2014, the foundation made what it hopes to be the first of many annual gifts to research (see Newsworthy for more information on this year's recipients).  Each year, at the annual meeting of the board of directors, a decision will be made about how to spend the funds raised for research to best serve sarcoma patients and the research community.

"The tumor bank is absolutely critical. Without the data that the tumor bank has given us, I can think of at least 3 very promising clinical trials that we never would have been able to bring to Seattle. In terms of our own immunotherapy research, the tissue bank has allowed us to look at the expression of immunogenic antigens in patients' tumors, which is an absolutely essential part of our research effort."
