Sarcoma awareness event hosted by Northside Hospital



June 17, 2014
NORTH FULTON, Ga. — The Northside Hospital Cancer Institute will host the second annual Sarcoma Awareness Sunset Stroll on Wednesday, June 25 at 7 p.m. at Piedmont Park in Atlanta.

"The Sunset Stroll gives patients, loved ones and health care providers a chance to meet one another and exchange experiences, which in turn will give them hope and encouragement," said Dr. Gina D'Amato, Georgia cancer specialist.

D'Amato started the Sarcoma Sunset Stroll in 2013 to help raise awareness for the disease and honor patients who battle sarcoma cancer.

Sarcomas are cancers that develop from connective tissues of the body such as fat, muscles, nerve tissue, fibrous tissues or blood vessels.

They account for just one percent of cancers in adults.

According to the American Cancer Society, there will be about 12,000 new cases of sarcomas in the U.S. in 2014.

About a third of those patients will die from the disease.

Because sarcomas are so rare, many patients have never heard of the disease prior to diagnosis.

There is no fee to participate in the 2014 Sarcoma Awareness Sunset Stroll.

Donations are welcome, and proceeds benefit education, treatment and support for patients at the Northside Hospital Cancer Institute.
