Sarcoma is a rare, aggressive cancer of the bones or soft tissue and is especially prevalent in young people aged 15-25.
About 800 new cases are diagnosed each year in Australia and because the disease is often discovered late, only 40% of patients survive past five years.
Sock it to Sarcoma! provides support and care to people with sarcoma and their families. Funds are used for research, community awareness and patient support.
To assist in this season’s fundraising drive, an Everyday Hero page has been established for Premier clubs, players and supporters making donations, with all donations going directly to Sock it to Sarcoma!
