Who We Are

The Rutledge Foundation was founded in 2011, after Carley Rutledge was diagnosed with stage IV Ewing’s Sarcoma. When friends and family learned there has been no change in over 30 years in cure rates or treatment options for many of the 72,000 young adult cancer patients diagnosed every year, they knew they couldn’t sit idly by. They wanted to be a part of actively seeking targeted drugs,clinical trials, improved cure rates and patient care for all young adults with cancer.

CORE OBJECTIVES

  • Support research and clinical trials for young adult Sarcomas
  • IDENTIFY AND MEET THE UNIQUE NEEDS OF YOUNG ADULT CANCER PATIENTS
