Because of her relentless dedication to build awareness and fund research for the rare cancer, today People en Español has named Puerto Rican-born Arroyo-Farley to its “Las 25 Mujeres Mas Poderosas” (25 Most Powerful Women) list. She will be honored and will join a panel discussion at the POEROSAS LIVE! Conference in Miami on Sept. 16-17.
About Artz Cure Sarcoma
Artz Cure Sarcoma (ACS) was founded in 2015 by sarcoma cancer advocate and patient Zulema Arroyo-Farley. ACS is dedicated to creating sarcoma awareness and raising research funds for this rare, orphan and deadly cancer. It also aims to be the catalyst that drives the availability of pharmaceutical treatment options where now none currently exist. Its primary fundraising pillar utilizes the arts to bring hope and beauty to this difficult cancer challenge. Given her unique effort to create awareness and fund research to find targeted therapies for sarcoma, People en Español named Puerto Rican-born Arroyo-Farley to its “Las 25 Mujeres Mas Poderosas” (25 Most Powerful Women) list in 2016.
