Sarcoma Awareness Week 2019 Cogs Artwork
Thursday, June 27, 2019

We commissioned a national survey recently and discovered that 75% of people in the UK and Northern Ireland did not know about sarcoma.

That's 3 out of every 4 people. 

That's 75% of people who might ignore early symptoms.

That's only 1 out of 4 doctors or frontline staff who might diagnose the symptoms early.

That's 488 out of our 650 MPs in Westminster who don't know how many of their constituents are affected by sarcoma. 

This can't continue.

The good news is that, thanks to you, we are reaching more people. Last year, because of your participation, thousands of people who had never heard of sarcoma before, saw your posts on their screens. Your action during Sarcoma Awareness Week matters - you become our ambassadors. You make a mighty noise.

Let's do it again. Let's reach the 3 out of 4 people and make them #PartOfIt.

What can you do between 1-7 July?

75% of people don't know or are not sure what sarcoma is.

With your help, we can change that. Let's find allies who can bring about real change and make them #PartOfIt.

 

Sarcoma Awareness Week is 1-7 July 2019
