This website is dedicated to Gilles Frydman and to all the contributors of the original Leiomyosarcoma.info website (listed here ) who provided a valuable compass to guide LMS patients/caregivers/families.
This Leiomyosarcoma research website is also dedicated to the heroes among us, the patients and their families, and the researchers who work tirelessly every day to better understand this rare and complicated sarcoma to advance treatment options and improve survivorship.

“ I love the NLMSF – I love the patient programs held – your signature support advocacy to collaborate with sarcoma centers. LMS is common enough to have had a specific focus initiative- and the NLMSF was many steps ahead of the curve, to launch the LMS International Research Roundtable - to support patients in this way, and focus on LMS-specific research and support in the research landscape. Annie and Mitch are such a good team for the LMS Roundtable. They compliment each other with their unique strengths in moving forward to help patients and giving a special spotlight to LMS in particular.”
