      I don't know that any cancer is 100% curable.

      Unfortunately I have to agree with CAS1 -but you can be in remission for the rest of your life.

      There is an 80% curibility rate. With sarcoma if it is in one generalized area and they can successfully remove it, and it does not reappear in 5 years you are in the 80% percentile of cured. If there are multiple areas then your chances of curibility is lowered by how many and where they are located. This is researched through the ACS and various other cancer sites. The DR's told us the same thing that I had researched. Depending on the type of cancer you have depends on curibility or remission.
