Research Results are Coming In & How You Can Help

A Place for Help & Hope

This is a website about GYN Carcinosarcoma (GCS) also known as MMMT. GCS is a carcinosarcoma that begins in the female reproductive tract and includes ovarian, uterine or fallopian tube as primary sites.

I was diagnosed with an ovarian/uterine carcinosarcoma in April 2015. As I searched for information and resources to understand and manage this disease, I found very little that was helpful or hopeful. A year later, I have found much to be hopeful about. The purpose of this project is to share this information with others diagnosed with this rare cancer and raise funds to uncover the cure.

This is a rare cancer. There is currently little to no research dedicated to finding a cure for GCS/MMMT. For the first time, Dr. Michael Birrer and his brilliant team of researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center will focus on MMMT research and its cure. It will take a community of people to make this happen. My dream is to harness the power of the people I love, the people who are affected by this disease, and the medical community to discover the next game-changing breakthrough to cure this disease.

This is a site of Hope and Help for women who have this cancer and for their families, friends and anyone else interested in this disease.
