Race Donation Information
Thank you for donating to the Paula Takacs Foundation! Although we work hard to keep Sarcoma Stomp expenses to a minimum, a significant portion of the registration fee covers event-related expenses. So we greatly count on these donations to fund the sarcoma research efforts at the Levine Cancer Institute; they are crucial to our foundation's mission.
Your donation amount will also be counted towards a substantial monetary pledge that we have made to the Levine Cancer Institute to fund research. This pledge is reflected in a large plaque that has been installed on the 3rd floor of LCI which reads: "Research Programs funded by The Paula Takacs Foundation for Sarcoma Research in memory of Paula Tipton Takacs".
Researchers at LCI are currently analyzing tissue samples in sarcoma patients across the Levine Cancer Institute network to identify unique biomarkers. The goal is to use this data to develop a clinical trial at the Levine Cancer Institute for sarcoma patients that will improve the lives and outcomes of these patients. It costs about $1,500 to generate a biomarker panel of a sarcoma patient's tumor tissue sample. It costs approximately $300,000-500,000 to execute a clinical trial. With your generosity, both of these critical initiatives are in our sights at the Levine Cancer Institute.
We will regularly update participants and donors on the progress we make towards executing these vital endeavors through our Paula Takacs Foundation website as well as digital and print communications.
The Paula Takacs Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit.100% of your donation is tax-deductible! Our Tax ID number is 27-3366677.
