About Cure Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma International
The Cure Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma International (CureASPS) is an organization whose aim is to bring together alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS) patients, their families and friends who have a shared interest in finding a cure for ASPS. ASPS is a rare malignant tumor of connective tissue (sarcoma) of an unclear cause. It is among the least common sarcomas, representing one percent or less. It is characterized by a painless mass in the leg or buttock that may travel to the lungs as multiple nodules. ASPS can also occur in the trunk, arm or elsewhere. CureASPS looks for institutions and laboratories that are engaged in research to find a cure for ASPS and supports them with funds and donated tissue. CureASPS’s website provides information about research and therapies for patients and their medical caregivers. Members can share their experiences on an online forum.
