Raised by 127 people in 2 months
I am Lennie, Sara's mom, and I am asking you to save my daughters life by donating to www.sarascure.org   . Without a treatment for Clear Cell Sarcoma, Sara and others are left helplessly wondering how much time is left.  Scans every few months and surgery to stay ahead of the tumors is the best we have. There is hope in a 1st of its kind drug that needs critical funding to get through preclinical studies and to a trial.  We have researchers/scientist ready to go but we are in need of the funds. We can do this but we need your help NOW!

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.  Sarcoma makes up 20% of childhood cancers. Will you please watch our short video and learn about our families story and the path to save Sara's life and the lives of other young people battling Clear Cell Sarcoma? ++Your donation is tax deductible ++

32292290_1536597710252427_r.jpegClear cell sarcoma affects approximately 150 patients each year in the USA.  The survival rate is very low beyond 5 years and has not changed in decades.   Big pharmaceutical companies don't see profit with such a rare disease so its up to families to fund the needed drugs trials.

Here is what you can do now to save Sara and others

* Donate any amount! Donations are tax deductible and no amount is too small

* Email this GoFundMe link  to all contacts you know- going viral saves lives!

* Remind everyone that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness, this is a way to make a real difference

* Share this on all your social media sites with hashtags: #sarascure #Scottscure #strongertogether #fundingacure

With your help the two non profits of  Sarascure.org  and Chilidrens Cancer Therapy Development Institute will work to get these critical drugs to children with cancer.  We will use your donation specifically on a  CCS treatment to save Sara and others but we can't do it without having these funds.

Big pharmaceutical companies won't invest so its up to families to fund the needed drugs trials.  

Please help save my daughters life and the lives of those battling Clear Cell Sarcoma.  We can do this with your donation! Its tax deductible ID# 82-5445706 sarascure.org 

Every cent goes to Sarascure.org, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to funding the cure for clear cell sarcoma.  Sarascure.org works closely with scientists and institutions across the USA that are dedicated to a cure for Sarcoma.  This campaign will use every single dollar on drugs created to work directly on the gene fusions that causes Clear Cell Sarcoma. Children and young adults are desperately trying to stay alive while waiting on this funding.  We are confident we can get there in 12 months but we need the funds Now to get started.

No parent should have to watch a child suffer or die knowing that money will lead to the cure.  Your donation will give Sara and thousands of future patients a chance to live and dream about a future full of possibilities . Time is the enemy.  I need your help now to save my child.  All donations over and above the amount needed to fund these trials will go to Children's Cancer Therapy Development Institute (cc-TDI) another non profit for researching rare Childhood cancers.  I make you a mother's promise that every dollar will make a difference in childhood cancer research.

Thank you everyone for your donations and well wishes. In our first week Dr. Keller has already located 2 cell lines of the GI version of Clear Cell Sarcoma. One is in the UK and the other Japan and even better they are sharing them with us. Cell lines from other CCS tumors readily exist here in the US. Having all the types (foot, wrist, knee, etc...)allow the preclinical drug testing to be the best and most thorough for personalized treatments for each patient. your donations are already at work paying for the shipping of these critical cell lines. Thank you again and please keep sharing and pushing this campaign to go viral. The faster we get all the funds the more researchers working and the faster the treatments get to our loved ones. We love you all #strongertogether
