We have found the most reliable medical information will come from well-known cancer organizations, research facilities, hospitals, libraries, government agencies, and professional journals.

From patients to doctors, NLMSF is helping people across the world.

Annie and Mitch are such great patient advocates which I admire.”

The MyPART Network is coordinated through the NCI Center for Cancer Research (CCR). This program brings patients and their families together with healthcare providers, and researchers to work together to find treatments for rare cancers affecting youth and adults. Patients are invited to participate in the MyPART Network Natural History Study of Rare Solid Tumors.
Within the LMS community, everyone has a unique experience and sharing our narratives empowers the storyteller and all those who listen. Within the sarcoma community, those individual voices unite to serve as a core transformative component for the care paradigm with an emphasis on patient experience. This network can generate change and awareness.
Our mission is to advance research in order to accelerate treatment options and offer supportive resource assistance to patients and caregivers throughout the diagnosis and treatment journey.
