It is time for the 10th Annual Cancer Survivorship Walk. As you may or may not know, 4 1/2 years ago, Tricia was diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma of the broad ligament. There are many different types of sarcomas but the most important fact to understand is that less than 1% of those diagnosed with cancer will be diagnosed with a type of sarcoma. Tricia is the 12th, yes 12th, person to have ever been diagnosed with Broad Ligament Leiomyosarcoma and her doctors consider her a miracle. Another fact, 75% of people diagnosed with sarcoma, have a recurrence in two years - this year Tricia was 4 years cancer free!
On Saturday, May 17th, TEAM SARCOMA walks for Tricia, at Creve Couer Lake. Last year, we were a team of over 30 people strong and raised over $1,500 for The Wellness Community so that they can continue to help the cancer community of St. Louis as well as family and friends of those living with or who have lost their life to the monster. This year we are hoping for a team of 50 and to raise $3,000.
If you would like to help us raise money for TEAM SARCOMA, you can click the CHIP IN button at the top of the post OR if you'd like to register to join the walk and Team Sarcoma, you can visit The Wellness Community online at for a printable version of their pledge form.
