In 2005, Sally M. Kingsbury lost her life to sarcoma cancer. She hoped that others do not fall to her same fate. Her wish was that funds be raised to support sarcoma cancer research in hopes for a cure. In 2006, a group of family and friends joined together to bring to life Sally’s wish. Since our inception in 2007, as a 501(c)3 organization, the Foundation has granted over $365,000 to sarcoma cancer research facilities and has been listed in published medical reports acknowledging our contributions to new sarcoma cancer research. SMKSR raises funds through an annual Knockout Rose sale and supporter donations. The Foundation has also been the beneficiary of the Tour de Gruene, Cowboy Breakfast and benefits hosted by Up Town Chic Boutique and Alibi Boutique.
