About 33 people - patients/survivors/caregivers attended the first meeting July 16th. Most of them agreed to a quarterly meeting schedule - every 3 months for subsequent meetings, and most of them will communicate with each other by e-mail.

The Arizona Cancer Center speaker, Dr. Lee Cranmer stated that a multidisciplinary sarcoma clinic is in the process of being formed in Tucson, with assistance from the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ. Dr. Cranmer is one of the few medical professionals in Arizona that have any sarcoma experience/knowledge.

For the next meeting, tentatively set for October 15th, we will also invite patients/survivors/caregivers from other parts of Arizona, as some attendees came from the Phoenix and Sierra Vista areas.

Jill Winters our clinic social worker at the Arizona Cancer Center, Tucson made all the wonderful preparations for the meeting, and hosted the meeting.

With HOPE and LIFE for ALL.
