About This Event
The purpose of this race/walk is to raise awareness and money to fund Angiosarcoma research. Angiosarcoma is one of the most aggressive cancers and has a dismal prognosis with a 5 year overall survival rate of only 30%. Angiosarcoma Awareness, Inc. identifies, assesses, and funds laboratories with the ability to conduct angiosarcoma research. We are currently funding a lab at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and we have partnerships with labs at the University of Minnesota and at the MD Anderson Cancer Treatment Center at the University of Texas. Please visit www.cureasc.org to learn about this rare disease, those affected by it, our research, and how you can help.
