Date:8/4/2008

From its humble beginnings in 2003, when seven people who called themselves "Team Sarcoma" biked 200 miles in Louisiana, the Team Sarcoma Initiative has become an international movement. More than 8,000 people worldwide participated in this year's Initiative, surpassing the 3,400 who participated last year. Events in 14 countries were hosted by individuals, advocacy groups and medical centers seeking to raise awareness of sarcoma, a cancer that affects hundreds of thousands of people worldwide.

Ossining, NY (PRWEB) August 4, 2008 -- From its humble beginnings in 2003, when seven people who called themselves "Team Sarcoma" biked 200 miles in Louisiana, the Team Sarcoma Initiative has become an international movement.

More than 8,000 people worldwide participated in this year's Initiative, surpassing the 3,400 who participated last year. Events in 14 countries were hosted by individuals, advocacy groups and medical centers seeking to raise awareness of sarcoma, a cancer that affects hundreds of thousands of people worldwide.

Carol Anuszewski of Thorofare, NJ, speaks for many Team Sarcoma participants when she says, "This is our inspiration: To see that those who suffer now and in the future get a chance at survival."

Sarcoma is a cancer of the connective tissues, such as nerves, muscles and bones. Sarcomas account for 15-20% of childhood cancers and about 1% of adult cancers. They are often misdiagnosed, and many sarcomas resist current treatments.

The Team Sarcoma Initiative is an internationally coordinated set of events to raise awareness of sarcoma and raise funds to support sarcoma research, clinical trials, and patient and family services. Its mantra is "Sarcoma Knows No Borders," because sarcomas can occur anywhere in the body and can affect anyone in the world.
