Sara’s Cure is a grassroots, race-against-time campaign focused on funding critical research to find a cure for Clear Cell Sarcoma. The mission of Sara’s Cure is to make clear cell sarcoma survivable through education and scientific research while ensuring all patients and caregivers impacted have a voice and platform to enact change and strive toward the cure.
This non-profit 501(c)3 cause came to exist when 17 year old Sara Woods was diagnosed in 2016. This cancer is so rare that it hasn’t warranted funding from the pharmaceutical companies and hasn’t been at the forefront of government funded research. Funds that Sara’s Cure raises will go directly to research and advocacy for this cure. We are working directly with researchers and scientist at several top hospitals and labs. Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute (cc-TDI) and Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) are two of several institutions that we are working directly with to find a cure. Your financial support through our mission will not only help to cure Sara but countless others. Since starting this cause in March of 2018 we have connected with other young patients like, Scott Heller, 29, of NYC who have joined our fight!
