Sharon Sigfusson battled LMS for 3 1/2 years with courage and determination. She was an amazing wife and soulmate and mother to our two wonderful sons Kyle and Scott.
Gradually LMS stole her independence, first with walking and she worked at teaching herself to walk with a quad cane and not use a wheelchair, and in December 2016 she lost the ability to use her right arm. However she never gave up and just kept trying to manage each new challenge with grace and compassion.
Her family and friends got to witness her humor even in the last few days in a way those of us who were there will never forget. Her husband Larry who was by her side the entire journey against the Purple Dragon, and her two sons Kyle and Scott as well as her best friend Lyndi were at her side in the final few days and hours as she transitioned from this world to a better one.
Sharon Sigfusson will be forever loved and missed by us, but never forgotten.

About Leiomyosarcoma Support & Direct Research Foundation (LMSDR)

Debra Ross Stahl

This fund was created out of love for Sharon Sigfusson 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 leiomyosarcoma. We offer the largest moderated support group online for leiomyosarcoma, 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 website 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 which Sharon Sigfusson 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 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.
