Specialized sarcoma treatment programs should be considered by all sarcoma patients. These uncommon cancers simply arent seen enough by most oncologists and specialized programs offer better access to treatment and clinical trials. My son was seen at the Huntsman Cancer Center in SLC Utah and the treatment offered was very different than that available locally. We put together a list to help sarcoma patients know where to get a second opinion.
