Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Funding for sarcoma research for 15,000 fellow sarcoma patients. Children and adults.

Help doctors through research to find answers to this rare disease and better treatment options, allow better care and prognosis.

Networking and through relationships spreading sarcoma awareness. Helping others become better patient advocates to find the best treatment and specialist for rare cancer.

Ultimate goal is answers to what causes sarcoma and how to treat and cure.

Being members of Arkansas Non-Profit Alliance

Attending Rare Disease Week In Washington, DC to share my story and build those relationships with our US congress representatives and senators. I will be attending Feb 29th-March 4th 2016.

Building relationships with local lawmakers.

On going fundraisers that are health and wellness driven.

My oncologist collaborating with his colleagues and other sarcoma specialist to make the best decisions of the patients in research decisions.

Sarcoma awareness through various social media platforms.

Applying for grants through our communities to get seed money to make them happen.

I am athlete myself and know many runners in my area. So I continually am updating the FB group I set out to continually reach out to them set this event as a goal for our 1st charity run to support our charity as I am an athlete just like them.

My orthopedic oncologist will be participating with me in this event as he is sharing and reaching out to his colleagues, staff and employees at Winthrop Rockefeller Cancer Institute in Little Rock, AR.

I believe to have leaders of the team as myself (patient) athlete and my oncologist the doctor running in the event is very powerful in talking the talk and walking the walk to encourage others that they can too, have fun and at the same time raising funding for a much needed cause.

I feel very grateful for just rolling out the website in October 2015 and donations of 4250.00 without any events previous to my update on 2-1-16 With our charity run event in March I am hopeful we will reach our goal of $20,000 for research. This is all a journey, will take time and no destination; however as I follow what was put on my heart I know God will bless our charity bringing hope to the hopeless and awareness nationally bringing funding to rare cancer, and to Stand for our MISSION!

We are in infancy so I the sarcoma patient and doing the majority of work, using dollars from our own pockets to get this up and running.

We have also accomplished two TV station interviews as well as a written UAMS patient story on their website. I will continue to learn daily on being a better advocate and standing for our mission!!!! We are rare alone, but STRONG together!!!
