About Clear Cell sarcoma foundation

What is the Clear Cell Sarcoma Foundation?

The Clear Cell Sarcoma Foundation (formerly Sara’s Cure) is a Charleston, SC based 501(c)(3) with one mission – to make Clear Cell Sarcoma survivable through education and scientific research while ensuring all patients and caregivers impacted have a voice and platform to enact change and strive towards the cure.

Dr. Kevin B. Jones, MD

"An effort like Sara's Cure is really important to try to connect people in the earliest stage of their diagnosis"

Our Values

Our work is heavily shaped by our core values


Every Clear Cell Sarcoma patient has a story, a life, a family, and a future. We want to give every CCS patient a place to call home.


We believe it is our responsibility to support the patients as well as the research and clinical doctors by using best practices to always keep the mission at the forefront of our work.  

Care & Service

Every member of the Clear Cell Sarcoma family, patients and those who care for them, will have access to the discoveries and connections we make to find a treatment for a better outcome.


We are committed to improving the lives of those with Clear Cell Sarcoma and ultimately to all sarcoma warriors through collaboration and sharing of our successes.

2017 - 2018

Sara's Cure was born

Another tumor developed and we knew we would not wait for more. Denny and Sara along with our Scientific Director, Kelley traveled to meet the only scientist we could find working from a grant for Clear Cell Sarcoma at the time. That trip revealed how little was known about CCS and that we would do something to change that. Sara’s Cure was born and we started to meet others realizing we are not alone.

2018 - 2019

First of it's Kind Repurposed Drug Screen
