Will you be ONE of 1,000? We’re asking 1,000 people to donate just $10 this month for Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is on Tuesday, November 30th. Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement. With your help, we hope to raise $10k for appendix cancer research, education and awareness. Every dollar makes a difference and every donation will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000 by a generous anonymous donor!
Because the Appendix Cancer Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (ACPMP) Research Foundation is a small charitable organization created by a community of individuals affected by appendix cancer/PMP whose mission is twofold: to fund research to ultimately find a cure for these rare diseases, and to fund and support educational programs for physicians, clinicians, patients, and caregivers.
The incidence of appendix cancer in the US is rising. Incidence rates of individuals of all ages with appendix cancer have risen 232% between 2000 and 2016 in the U.S. Appendix cancer is a rare cancer but it deserves recognition, funding, and research so that our patients have better diagnosis, more treatment options, more referrals to specialists, and one day hopefully a cure.
The ACPMP Research Foundation is the only nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research for appendix cancer and PMP.
100% of all funding comes from fundraisers created by patients, their families and friends, as well as individual donations from family members in honor or in memory of loved ones. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
