We believe in honoring courage. We believe in helping others.
And we believe that through investing in visionary scientific research with a relentless commitment to excellence, hope for sarcoma cures can spread throughout the globe.
It’s a cause worthy of our attention, because when it comes to treating the over 150 genetic expressions of this rare cancer, few sufferers have access to cutting-edge treatment options, and about half won’t live beyond 5 years – a statistic that hasn’t changed for decades. The Paula Takacs Foundation has committed to fund sarcoma research at Levine Cancer Institute and Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, NC. For pediatric and adult patients in the Carolinas, that means increasing the availability of novel treatment options and a real possibility for remission and cures. For the world at large, this means working to uncover the mysteries of sarcoma that lead to solid answers and expand global hope. We hope you will choose to become a stakeholder in this sarcoma research program by donating, volunteering, and participating in fundraising events.
