April
For anyone that knew my mother, you know that she was one tough lady; arguably, the strongest woman around. She fought her battle for 6.5 years and in that time her faith, determination, strength, attitude and smile was remarkable. She had courage beyond anything we have ever seen. She lived life to the fullest and each day like it was her we are very thankful that she is now with our Heavenly Father!
SCIBERRAS, April, age 65, of Garden City, June 28, 2018. Beloved wife of Arthur Sciberras. Loving mother of Maurice Sciberras, Matthew (Geniese) Sciberras, Nicholas Sciberras and Evelyn (Brian) Brissman. Dearest grandmother of Andrew, Caden and Caleb. She is also survived by her brothers Fred and Kim. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brothers Bud, Gene and Jerry.

About Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research Foundation (LMSDR)

LMSDR

Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research Foundation

This fund was created out of love, to help others win their battle with leiomyosarcoma by funding LMS specific research. Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research Foundation (LMSDR) raises donations for Leiomyosarcoma research and patient support.  We advocate directly with sarcoma researchers to study leiomyosaroma. We offer the largest moderated support group online for leiomysarcoma, where patients and loved ones get the latest LMS news and  personal support. The LMSDR’s website offers local support groups, details of what we do, the research we have funded and many resources for the Leiomyosarcoma community. The LMSe Alerts is our monthly newsletter, offering more updated clinical trials, news and community events. The Leiomyosarcoma Lifeline is our new blog, featuring patient stories and our well-known Long Term Thriver stories.

We collaborate with researchers and other organization to reach our mission and vision of finding treatments that will work.  We have created the Leiomyosarcoma Tissue Bank for researchers to study our disease, the Leiomyosarcoma Patient Registry to collect data, and ran successful blood collections for study. We have brought patients and loved ones together from all over the world for education and support at our Leiomyosarcoma patient conferences, in Denver, Colorado, San Francisco, California, New York City, New York, and Maui, Hawaii.  Please stay in touch with our website for more upcoming events sponsored by Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research Foundation.

Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research is an all volunteer organization. We are proud to have the minimal amount of expenses as possible, to ensure your money goes directly to funding promising research for Leiomyosarcoma specifically.  You can volunteer, put on fundraisers, promote LMS awareness and ask your employer for matched funds. Please consider helping us Work, not wish, for treatments that will work for us. We have been a 501(C) (3) since 2006 and a tax-free charity.
