Dr Robin Young and his team at the University of Sheffield want to find out if a simple blood sample before a scan could help tell us if a sarcoma has started to spread or that someone was at high risk of their sarcoma spreading.
We're currently funding 19 excellent research projects into sarcoma across 12 UK centres. Sarcoma UK are funding these projects to understand more about sarcoma, find new treatments and ultimately identify a cure.
What colourful and delicious events you produced for Sarcoma Awareness Week. Heres the first of two posts with a selection of your great photos from your Big Picnic events. You really threw yourselves into it!
