Tom Williams, State General Agent of the Williams-Zophin Agency, representing American Income Life in the south Florida region, presented the donation to Bert Thomas, CEO of Sarcoma Foundation of America at Williams-Zophin's main office in Pompano Beach. "Dave and I chose the Sarcoma Foundation to honor the memory of my wife, Debbie, who battled chondrosarcoma for 3 years before passing away in March of 2011," said Williams. "Sarcoma is a rare cancer that doesn't have a lot of awareness yet, and the Sarcoma Foundation is bringing it to the forefront. I've been involved with the Foundation since Debbie's diagnosis in 2008," he added.

The Sarcoma Foundation of America (SFA) was founded in 2000 to advocate for sarcoma patients by funding research and increasing awareness about the disease. The organization raises money to privately fund grants for sarcoma researchers and conducts education and advocacy efforts on behalf of sarcoma patients.
