Our Story

SaRC-Q was born out of a collective passion for conquering sarcoma. In 2023, dedicated physicians, experts in sarcoma, came together with the shared belief that sarcoma patients deserve better.

Recognizing the unique challenges of this rare cancer, our founders pooled their knowledge and resources to create a platform for transformative change.
