Support osteosarcoma research with the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative!

Osteosarcoma is a rare and difficult form of cancer. It often strikes children, adolescents and young adults, and treatment can involve up to a year of aggressive chemotherapy and surgery. It is our hope that research will lead to newer and better treatments for those who are diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

The Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative has funded more than $250,000 in osteosarcoma research studies by respected investigators around the world. Recipients of the Initiative’s grants agree to publish both an experimental plan and a study report at These reports allow people everywhere to learn from the research that we fund. We are proud of this level of transparency and accountability, and we believe that donors have a right to know how their money is used!

At the Initiative, we also believe that quality research should be funded wherever it is done, and we encourage collaborative efforts between departments, institutions and countries. We hope that the results of these research studies will be stepping stones to finding a cure for osteosarcoma.

The Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative is a small, dedicated organization. We maintain an extremely low overhead of 2-3% per year. Thus, 97-98% of the funds we receive go directly to support sarcoma research.

Note: Donations made through this Razoo page and widget are targeted for osteosarcoma research. The Razoo service allows us to process credit card donations and fundraise more efficiently. Each donation comes to us after a 2.9% fee is taken for this service.

The mission of the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative is to improve the quality of life for people dealing with sarcoma. The Initiative increases public awareness of sarcoma, raises funds to award research grants, and provides support and timely information to sarcoma patients, their families, and medical professionals. These efforts are achieved through collaboration with numerous individuals and organizations that share a similar vision.
