Welcome to UPSarcoma
sarcoma is a rare type of cancer
Hi, My name is Sandy Briden and I have undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (UPS).
Sarcoma is a rare and often misdiagnosed type of cancer and it is important to raise awareness.
I have compiled a video with three main aims:
- To help friends and family understand sarcoma and where to go for information and support.
- To help people newly diagnosed with sarcoma.
- To encourage people to get unusual and persistent lumps, bumps and swellings checked out by a doctor.
Sadly, Deena, an advocate for the early detection of sarcoma, who features in this video has passed away. It is important the video continues to raise sarcoma awareness in her honour.
