Angiosarcoma Awareness 5K Road Race and Walk Saturday, May 4, 2013
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
has a dismal prognosis with a
5 year overall survival rate of 30%.
We are in
against time to find a cure,
not only for ourselves, but for allvictims of
disease. Because this is such a
rare cancer, accounting for only 0.1%
malignancies, it is poorly understood.
We recognize the fact that unless we create a
patient-driven initiative to fund
specific research, our rare cancer will never be
the focus of large scale
scientific endeavors that
might shed light on the disease progression, light
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
