Would you like to personally help advance LMS research? Well now you can by participating in the Broad Institute’s LMS Count Me In Project.
The National Leiomyosarcoma Foundation is partnering with Count Me In to inform patients about this exciting project and to encourage them to participate at NO COST.
Count Me In’s LMS project, is a non-profit initiative, bringing patients and researchers together, to accelerate discoveries in cancer research. The LMS project is supported by a grant from the National Cancer Institute.
If you’ve ever been diagnosed with LMS, you can join the LMS project, by sharing your samples, copies of your medical records, and your experiences. Information collected and shared will be de-identified, before being shared widely with researchers to speed discoveries.
How do you participate?
By giving permission to obtain your medical records, saliva, blood, and stored tissue samples, and providing information about your personal LMS journey.
Visit https://lmsproject.org to learn more about participation.
There is also a “For Your Physician” document on the Count Me In website, with more information about the project to share with your Oncologist/Sarcoma Specialist
We hope that you will decide to participate in this exciting and very promising new Leiomyosarcoma research initiative, that holds great promise for a better understanding of LMS, to help pave the way for novel research and future survival treatments.
“With courage and dedication, we can inspire
not only others, but ourselves”.
