We call this our ‘1000 faces of RMS’ because our ambition is to gain support from 1000 people with Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) for the International Sarcoma Kindred Study and to promote research and find a cure for RMS. If we get anywhere near this level of support, and it will take a long time, then we together will have made a massive step forwards in supporting research into this disease. Please join our Facebook group to see how this project is progressing and meet other members.
The medical and research communities are working to learn more about rhabdomyosarcoma, ways to screen for it, detect it early, prevent it, provide more effective treatments, to make treatments easier for people diagnosed with this disease, and how best to care for them. Science has delivered great progress in recent years with huge improvements in the treatment of a number of cancers such as breast cancer.
There is now growing confidence that we can make the same progress with more rare cancers like RMS and that at some point in the future it will become a manageable disease. Our aim is to support those diagnosed and to support these professionals in their research into RMS.
