This website is dedicated to Denise Reinke, APRN, BC, AOCN, a visionary among the co-founders of the Sarcoma Coalition – to embrace the concept of the Coalition as a valuable compass for organizations to come together in support of one another in patient advocacy for impactful patient outcomes.
Denise brought her vast, extensive professional background and experience as a Nurse Practitioner, at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center, as well as having been the CEO of the Sarcoma Alliance for Research through Collaboration (SARC) from 2007 – 2021, with Dr. Laurene Baker,
Professor of Internal Medicine and Pharmacology, Departments of Internal Medicine and Pharmacology, Division of Hematology/Oncology, University of Michigan Medical School.
Additional Sarcoma Coalition co-founders were Peter Wycoff, founder of Rein In Sarcoma and Annie Achee of the National Leiomyosarcoma Foundation.
Success comes with the Sarcoma Coalition collaborative spirit of sarcoma patient and family focus, in a unified spirit of purpose – to “ACHIEVE MORE TOGETHER” to enhance patient care and treatment outcomes, with the support of the sarcoma research clinician community.
