The Leiomyosarcoma Direct Research Foundation (LMSdr) raises money for new research and development in order to help find a cure for Leiomyosarcoma.
Leiomyosarcoma (LMS) is a type of sarcoma cancer. Leiomyosarcomas are malignant tumors which develop from smooth muscle tissue. Smooth muscle cells make up the involuntary muscles in our body. Involuntary muscles are those which we do not move consciously with our brain. Involuntary muscles are found in most parts of the body: in uterus, lungs, liver, stomach and intestines, walls of all blood vessels, and skin.
Shareholder Scott J. Eldredge has presented talks for the LMSdr Foundation in order to help victims of LMS recover funds for their injuries or diseases caused by medical malpractice or by dangerous devices, such as power morcellators.
