*Thank you to everyone who answered our patient/caregiver survey and who participated in this session by sending in video clips for the presentation. We will try our best to use as many of the answers as possible and have chosen to keep all survey questions anonymous in the interest of time and space for the slides. We hope that this session will be the start of a longer discussion between patients/caregivers and health care providers to provide information and to work together towards a common goal of improving quality of life for Sarcoma patients and their families*
