Does anyone know any Canadian sites

or Sarcoma centers near to British Columbia? Or any clinical trial sites for leiomyosarcoma? I'd like to be prepared as my radiation oncologist was not particularly optimistic and hopeful and I begin radiation tomorrow. I am also attempting to switch oncologists with the help of my GP and gynocologist as I believe support and encouragement goes a long way! I will not give up! (Stage 2/3, Grade 2). This site has been wonderful but as this cancer is one of the rare ones, it's hard to find many women that have been throught this!

National Ovarian Cancer Association

Canadian Cancer Society

Sarcoma Foundation

Britich Columbia Cancer Agency
Vancouver Centre
Vancouver Island Centre

I do hope this helps getting you started in your search for support and information. Hopefully, these links will lead to other resources, specific to your are.

Wishing you the best of luck and keeping you in my ers.

Canadian sites

First, you may know that LMS is treated differently than other forms of ovarian cancer.
You may want to join an online support group. I belong to one of two international but English-speaking lists on leiomyosarcoma. It is the L-M-Sarcoma at There are hundreds of members, and I think we have several in British Columbia. I'm sure they could talk about sarcoma specialists.
This is what I found in our archives:

Yes I belong to the ACOR site but am unaware of any other people for BC except one other who went from Stag 1 to Stage 4 in three months!

We do not have sarcoma specialists which is unfortunate and I am being treated by gyno. oncologists. However IF my disease proceeds further, I will go to Prince Margaret in Toronto. My usual "signature" is

You would remember the list members from Canada better than I would, I'm sure. But you may want to consider a post inquiring if any one has any suggestions. I'm always amazed at how much information that list has.
On the list, I go by my real name, Suzie Siegel. My history is: Vaginal LMS; staged 2c, very high grade; dx and surgery July '02; 6 weeks radiation; 8 mm. lung met discovered Jan. '03; 4 rounds of Gemzar/Taxotere, some shrinkage; 4 more rounds, met is now just a speck; started 6 infusions of Gemzar in October.
