What we aim to solve

Sara’s Cure is working with several entities to fast tract a treatment for patients with clear cell sarcoma. We offer patients a platform to voice their concerns, struggles, treatments, reports and more. We are an organization that lets them know that although their cancer is Ultra Rare they are not alone. We are creating a seat at the table with the pharmaceutical world, oncology world, rare disease community and the government. We will continue to grow and push for a treatment with hopes to be able to one day offer financial support to patients, also. First, a viable treatment!

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

We are working to find a treatment and get a trial going for clear cell sarcoma patients. We are in the process of developing a patient registry to give the patients, medical world, and scientist access to the data necessary to help these patients. Sara’s Cure is also tirelessly working to be heard and supported in the cancer community.

Sara’s Cure is funding research at a lab that is testing repurposed drugs on clear cell sarcoma cell lines to find a combination that works for this horrible cancer. We are working with other pharmaceutical companies that are helping us towards a possible trial along with the FDA and others. We are establishing a patients registry through NORD that will compile critical information for doctors, scientists and patients. We also plan to continue to attend major summits/conferences to get in front of the major players in the industry so they will hear our story and know our name.

Sara’s Cure will continue to hold events and share our mission globally for support. This support will allow us to continue these critical, possibly life saving steps.

Sara’s Cure know that we are making progress each time we connect with someone important in the industry and they call us and offer to help. We have several plans in the works for the future. We also receive quarterly reports from the lan that we fund with updates on their funding.

Sara’s Cure has made steps in repurposed drug testing through the lab that we fund. We have grown in patients that we support and have grown in supporters. Our next biggest step is to get the patient registry up and running and properly funded over the course of time. We will, of course, continue to push forward in every way possible to find a treatment.
