What is Team Morgan?
We are honoring the beautiful life of Heather Morgan through Team Morgan. Heather was diagnosed with Appendix Cancer/PMP in September 2020 and after fighting a long hard battle of chemotherapy and multiple complex surgeries, she sadly passed away on December 2nd. We stood by her side as she faced this disease with strength, hope and humor. We hope you can join with us now to honor her memory by raising awareness and funding research to help find a cure for this terrible cancer.
Funds raised for Team Morgan will go to the ACPMP Research Foundation, a 501(c)3, whose mission is to fund research to find a cure for Appendix Cancer and Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP) as well as fund educational programs to better educate physicians and patients about these diseases and help raise awareness.
The ACPMP Research Foundation has awarded $1.3 million in the form of 27 research grants over the past 12 years. These research grants have had a tremendous impact, culminating in 21 peer-reviewed scientific research articles. You can see a complete list of the research grants awarded here. Fundraising and donations are how ACPMP supports all of their incredible research and educational programs, 100% of all funding comes from ACPMP’s patient community alongside family and friends support. That’s why what Team Morgan is doing is so impactful!
Team Morgan’s goal is to raise $25,000 so that the ACPMP Research Foundation can name a 2022 annual research grant in memory of Heather.
