Your contribution to the Froedtert Hospital Foundation’s Sarcoma Fund can help to support important work in patient care, research and education that otherwise might not be possible. Here’s how:
Seed Funding: Most major medical advancements evolve from research. Charitable contributions are an important source of “seed” support for patient-centered research in its earliest stages. Seed funding allows researchers to get the baseline data necessary to compete for National Institutes of Health and other funding.
Database Development: Large data collections allow researchers to track trends over time and gauge treatment effectiveness.
Patient Education: Helping patients deal with their diagnosis, the side effects of treatment and quality-of-life issues after treatment is a top priority. The annual Sarcoma Patient Education Day, featuring speakers and other activities for patients and families, is supported by philanthropy.
Support Groups: Research has shown that people with cancer and their caregivers are better able to deal with their disease when supported by others in similar situations.

Cancer and the COVID-19 Vaccine
There is currently no data that suggests current or former cancer patients should avoid getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Cancer can weaken your immune system, so we recommend that most patients get the vaccine as soon as possible.
