Funds Raised On July 17, 2013, a research grant was awarded to Dr. Vinod Ravi, M.D. at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston TX. The Isabella Nicole Slot Angiosarcoma Awareness Inc. grant, in the amount of $25,000.00 is a direct result of the Troy ASA 5k on May 4, 2013. View the grant letter here.

The purpose of this race/walk is to raise awareness and money to fund Angiosarcoma research. In the hope of making a larger impact across the nation, we have decided to have the Troy Angiosarcoma Awareness 5k Road Race and Walk held on the same day and time as the 3rd annual Road Race in Oxford, MA.

Who We Are We are a patient-driven non-profit organization with one goal, to find answers through research. Angiosarcoma is one of the most aggressive cancers and has a dismal prognosis with a 5 year overall survival rate of 30%. We are in a race against time to find a cure, not only for ourselves, but for allvictims of this insidious disease. Because this is such a rare cancer, accounting for only 0.1% of adult malignancies, it is poorly understood.

We recognize the fact that unless we create a patient-driven initiative to fund angiosarcoma specific research, our rare cancer will never be the focus of large scale scientific endeavors that might shed light on the disease progression, light that might be cast on novel targets for therapies.

Our Mission We identify laboratories that are currently conducting angiosarcoma research and we raise funds to support and augment their work. We fund research that is dedicated to revealing the molecular underpinnings of angiosarcoma and to fi nding individual therapies for patients.Our staff includes a research scientist who reviews the work of labs that have published findings resulting from their angiosarcoma research. We focus on laboratories at world renowned institutions with scientists who have existing expertise in studying this disease.
