The Mission of LMS Lifeline
Welcome to our website! This website is created to share information, resources, and support for those who have been diagnosed with Leiomysarcoma (LMS) and / or the caregivers. We welcome your experiences and information that may contribute to helping us get as many resources out there!
It takes strength in numbers to fight and win. By the LMS Community coming together, we can have a stronger voice, a more visible presence at oncology and sarcoma meetings around the world. Together, we can make the difference for us all, through a collective, collaborative approach to defeating LMS.
- Complement existing support group websites with continuous podcasts and YouTube presentations for the LMS Community with the capability to post questions related to the podcasts or YouTube presentations
- Provide lists of suggested questions to consider in preparation for medical appointments
- Provide lay articles on LMS from sources such as MDLinx and PubMed
- Provide a bibliography of LMS related technical research papers from annual oncology meetings, medical journals and other sources
- Provide updated links to Patient/Caregiver Cancer Support Organizations
