Often considered the “forgotten cancer,” sarcoma is an umbrella term that refers to a group of rare forms of cancer that develop in the connective tissues in the muscles, bones, nerves, cartilage, tendons, blood vessels and fatty and fibrous tissues of the body. Sarcoma Awareness Month was created to increase awareness of these forms of cancer, drive research and raise funding for the ongoing search for the causes and treatments of these rare cancers.
