Brenda Sanders

Brenda Sanders passed away September 1st, 2008 after a long 8-year battle with Leiomyosarcoma. After 4 years of surgery and chemotheropy the doctors had all but given up hope, but not our mother. When most would have hung their head that all was lost, she began to search on the internet for experimental drugs. With the help of her family and her faith in Jesus Christ, she began to find doors being opened for her.

Mom is the strongest person I have ever known and she was an inspiration to her family and everyone she came in contact with. She loved her family and her grandchildren more than anything in the world.

The world will be less bright without her smile.

About Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research Foundation (LMSDR)


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 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.
This fund was created out of love for Brenda Sanders 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.

Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research is an all volunteer organization which Brenda Sanders supported.  We are proud to have Patient Registry to collect data, and ran successful blood collections for study. We have brought patients and loved ones together from all over the 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 making a donation and 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.
