Together, we can make a difference.

In October of 2013, Amy Reed, a physician and mother of six underwent surgery for what her doctors believed were uterine fibroids.  Eight days later she received a call no one ever wants to get.  "The pathology came back—you have cancer."  Amy was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma just a year after the birth of her youngest child.  This cancer, which can masquerade as a fibroid, is aggressive, and often resistant to common cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. 


A special thank you to Marc Masso, owner of LaStalla Restaurant in Newtown, PA for providing SSRI with a wonderful venue and menu for Amy's "Slay Sarcoma" Fundraiser Luncheon. We'd also like to thank all of our attendees and supporters for a beautiful turnout. Through your continued support, we are able to move forward with our mission to raise awareness and research funding to fight leiomyosarcoma. We look forward to seeing you October 14th for our fourth annual Slay Sarcoma 5K Run / Walk!
