When you support Rein in Sarcoma, you improve the lives of patients, survivors and families, and save lives by educating the public and medical community, and funding research.  

Sarcomas are aggressive cancers that occur in the connective tissues of the body. Approximately 15,000 new cases of soft tissue and bone sarcomas are diagnosed each year in the United States. While relatively rare but significant among adults, sarcoma cancers are among the top five most commonly diagnosed cancers affecting children.

Early diagnosis is critical to successful outcomes. Rein in Sarcoma works closely with medical professionals to promote earlier, accurate diagnoses of all patients with a suspicious lump, bump, or bruise. 

Your funding today improves and saves lives through:

Patient and Family Support 

  • Connection - “Peer to Peer” patient support and mentorship
  • Information - Free Sarcoma Patient Starter Handbooks
  • Companionship - Monthly coffee meetups 
  • Community - Rein in Sarcoma gatherings throughout the year to include our annual Patient Picnic Party in the Park, Winter Gathering and Rein in Sarcoma Remembers

Education & Awareness – Sarcomas are too often delayed in diagnosis. With education and awareness, thousands of lives can be saved. You will provide:

  • Red Flags education materials vetted by our Medical Advisory Board of sarcoma experts from Mayo Clinic, MN Children’s Hospitals and Clinics and the University of Minnesota
  • Medical student education and sarcoma scholarships including the Jan Maudlin RIS Sarcoma Scholars scholarships, significantly extending sarcoma awareness and education.

Research – Rein in Sarcoma funds research grants to major centers, including the University of Minnesota, MN Children’s Hospitals and Clinics, Mayo Clinic - Rochester, Mayo Clinic - Jacksonville, and Case Western Reserve.



Founded in 2001, Rein in Sarcoma has funded over $2 million by the Foundation which has leveraged 13.4 million for sarcoma research. We are a community of dedicated doctors, nurses, volunteers, donors, staff, thrivors (survivors), and loved ones committed to improving the lives of all who have been touched by sarcoma cancers. 

"Research and education are the cornerstones for improving sarcoma patient survival and quality of life."                     

- Dr. Denis Clohisy, University of Minnesota


We are the story of every sarcoma survivor who becomes part of our community, bringing a new level of energy and hope to all touched by sarcoma cancer. Research, awareness, fellowship, support, and caring make a powerful mix. 

None of this would be possible without the efforts hundreds of volunteers and the support of over 3,500 contributors, supporters, corporate sponsors, sarcoma patients and loved ones.
