Resource Library

We have collected links to many resources we believe are helpful to patients, families, and more, including a link to find NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers.


The Kristen Ann Carr Sarcoma Center

The Kristen Ann Carr Sarcoma Center is a $10 million dollar capital campaign. This project is designed to significantly expand the ability of doctors to make progress in both the lab and in patient care. In fact, all MSKCC sarcoma patients are now treated through The Kristen Ann Carr Sarcoma Center, something for which Kristen would be so proud.
