Yellow Wristbands To Support Sarcoma Awareness

Raise Awareness of Sarcoma with Bracelets

Sarcoma is a cancer that develops in the connective tissues of the body. Although they comprise only 1% of cancer diagnoses, sarcomas are a dangerous cancer that claim thousands of lives each year. Because sarcomas are not common, they receive very little funding compared to more common types of cancer. Sarcoma awareness wristbands can be used to show support for a person or family, raise awareness of the need for more research, or fundraise to help the cause. Join AmazingWristbands.com to show your support for Sarcoma awareness.

Sarcoma Awareness Month in July

Sarcoma Awareness Month is in July. Yellow is the recognized awareness color used in conjunction with sarcoma awareness. Many events take place for Sarcoma Awareness Month, and custom sarcoma awareness wristbands can be a part of any event. You can choose any message for your custom silicone wristbands. A generic yellow “Cure Sarcoma” wristband would work well for a big event, or a more personalized wristband such as “Team Joan -- Beat Sarcoma” could be used to show support for an individual.

Yellow To Support Awareness

What is Sarcoma?

Sarcoma happens when abnormal and cancerous cells grow in the connective tissue, such as fat, blood vessels, nerves, bones, muscles, deep skin tissues, and cartilage. Here are some important facts about sarcoma from The Sarcoma Alliance:

  • Sarcomas can develop in children and adults.
  • For children under 20, approximately 15 percent of cancer diagnosis are sarcomas.
  • There are approximately 14,000 new cases of sarcoma diagnosed each year and over 5,000 deaths.
  • Soft tissue sarcoma rarely causes any symptoms. Because soft tissue is very elastic, the tumors can grow quite large before they are felt. The first symptom is usually a painless lump. As the tumor grows and begins to press against nearby nerves and muscles, pain or soreness can occur.
  • Rhabdomyosarcomas are more common in children than adults and are characterized by tumors in the skeletal muscle. Rhabdomyosarcomas are often widely spread by the time a diagnosis is made.
  • There are three types of bone sarcoma: osteosarcoma; Ewing’s sarcoma; and chondrosarcoma
  • Osteosarcoma is the most common type of bone cancer. It typically affects adolescents and young adults during periods of rapid bone growth.
  • Symptoms of bone sarcoma can vary depending on the size and location of the tumor. Pain is the most common symptom.
