LING FAMILY PROVIDES 30 NIGHTS OF FREE FURNISHED HOUSING TO AN OUT-OF-TOWN SARCOMA FAMILY
For the second year, the Ling family (Penelope, Henry & Eric, with support from their parents & grandparents) requested donations in lieu of birthday gifts be made to the Amschwand Sarcoma Cancer Foundation in memory of their beloved uncle, brother and son. Ben Ling who was diagnosed with chondrosarcoma at age 23 sadly never had the opportunity to meet his beautiful niece and nephews whose annual party celebrates his memory, but no doubt his spirit lives on through the legacy the family has established. At the family's request, funds raised will provide an entire month of free furnished housing for an out-of-town sarcoma patient's family seeking care in the Texas Medical Center.
Since its inception, ASCF has recognized both the emotional and financial toll that a diagnosis of cancer has on the family. ASCF is able to offer tangible support through the Housing Program due to the generosity and compassion of our benefactors. For more information on ASCF's housing program, visit the Housing Program page of our website. To make a donation, visit our Donations page.

Important Message to Sarcoma Patients If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with a sarcoma, we urge you to consult an expert who sees many Sarcoma patients each month. Such doctors are found at specialist hospitals particularly NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers. For a list of such centers, click here. This is the single most important piece of advice or information we can offer.
