Our 10th Annual PMP Cancer Awareness Walk and our 5th Dad's Day 5K was a huge success. This event is held annually to increase awareness and create funding for education and research to find a cure for Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP) Cancer, commonly referred to as Appendix Cancer. Pseudomyxoma Peritonei, meaning a false (pseudo), benign tumor with mucinous (myxoma) of the abdomen (peritonei). The cancer which produces mucin, a jelly-like substance, usually originates in the appendix and spreads to the abdominal lining. A huge thank you to all of our sponsors and participants for making this year's event another success. The PMP Cancer Awareness Walk is an all-volunteer effort. All proceeds benefit PMP/Appendix Cancer research and education through the ACPMP Research Foundation 501(c)3. With your help, we can make a difference!!!
