Sarcoma Research Foundation


The Sarcoma Research Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation created by sarcoma survivors.  Its main purpose is to raise money to fund sarcoma cancer research by making grants to organizations that conduct research on the treatment and cure of sarcoma cancer.  The Board of Directors of the Foundation reviews the current and proposed work of leading cancer hospitals to select recipients of the funds.

The Foundation holds an annual Texas Hold ‘Em Poker tournament, All in for the Cure,  as its principal means of fundraising.  Thanks to its generous donors, the Foundation has donated over $500,000 to the Sarcoma Research Center at M.D.  Anderson and other sarcoma cancer research organizations.

Richard Lobo, a sarcoma survivor, and his wife, Kathy, started the Foundation in 2007 with a strong desire to help raise awareness and increase funding for much needed research into all types of sarcoma.  In 2005, at the age of 36, Rich was diagnosed with a liposarcoma.  Prior to his diagnosis, Rich had always been healthy, leading a busy life with his wife and two young children.

After a year of high-dose chemotherapy, radiation and ultimately extensive surgery, Rich is now cancer-free.  Unfortunately, many of those diagnosed with this terrible disease are not as fortunate.  Rich and Kathy formed the Sarcoma Research Foundation to make these success stories more common.  They are confident that funding raised to support the research will enable the sarcoma researchers across the country to offer hope and a cure for those faced with this frightening disease.
