In loving memory of Amy Reed, who lost her four year battle with leiomyosarcoma on May 24, 2017.

Although gone, she will never be forgotten.
The Slay Sarcoma Research Initiative will continue
her fight to ensure that no other woman experiences
the same sentence she received in October 2013.

With your continued support, we will Slay Sarcoma!

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. 

To date, SSRI has raised $247,625.00 towards our goal of $1,000,000.00.
