With Your Support, We Can Do It
When we started the GCS Fund, we were told $300,000 would be enough to make a real difference. And it has! We have come so far but have so much further to go! We are counting on YOU to help us. The next phases in funding will be focused on CLINICAL TRIALS for those diagnosed with carcinosarcoma. In honor of those you know with GYN Carcinosarcoma, we have created a fund through our newly formed 501(c)(3) organization. We urge you to give a tax-deductible donation* to further the research of this rare cancer and find a cure.
Does It All Come Down to Money?
Money plays a significant part in making this project a success. But without the knowledge and support of a world- class medical team, without the patients who have donated precious tissue for study and who participate in studies with unknown outcomes, without the support of family and friends of the women with GYN Carcinosarcoma (GCS), the money would not be meaningful.
Why This Fund?
There is currently no research solely dedicated to finding a cure for GYN Carcinosarcoma (also known as GCS or MMMT). If you make a donation to the American Cancer Society, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, Ovarian Cancer National Alliance or other national research funds, NONE OF YOUR DONATION WILL GO TOWARDS FINDING A CURE FOR GYN CARCINOSARCOMA! The reason is that no research is being conducted on our cancer. If you want to make a difference with your donation, the GCS fund will be the one to support.
We have already engaged the interest of other researchers and more research will be directed to GYN Carcinosarcoma. However, this is the only research on our cancer today.
Where Does the Money Go?
Every dollar donated thus far has been targeted solely to GYN Carcinosarcoma. The project receives no funds. Only the researchers looking for a cure are receiving funds needed to do their work. If you are a patient or family member of a patient with GYN Carcinosarcoma and are able, this is the research to support.
When you click on the link you will be taken to a different site than the GCS Project, but associated with us. Your donation will be tax deductible and will support the research solely dedicated to finding a cure for gynecological carcinosarcoma. You will receive notification about your donation from a different site.
Let’s Make History!
Please consider helping to provide these dedicated researchers with the resources they need to find the cure.
