The Research


GYN Carcinosarcoma (also known as MMMT) is a rare uterine/ovarian cancer. The GCS Project started a fund dedicated to the research of this cancer, and ever since its inception in 2016, we’ve come a long way in short period of time.

 

Past research has been limited, but the GCS Project is changing that.
Because of the rarity of this cancer, the research on this tumor has been limited. The cancer genome atlas (TCGA) only analyzed high-grade serous ovarian cancers. Other than the GCS Project, 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! If you want to make a difference towards scientific research specifically for GCS, the GCS fund will be the one to support.
