What is Gynecological Carcinosarcoma?

Gynecological Carcinosarcoma (GCS) is a rare and aggressive cancer found primarily in the ovaries and uterus and can also originate in the fallopian tubes and vagina. GCS, is also known as MMMT or malignant mixed Müllerian tumor. Carcinosarcoma is unique in that it contains two types of cells; carcinomatous (epithelial tissue) and sarcomatous (connective tissue). GCS is rare. Fewer than 1,000 cases of GCS are diagnosed each year. Because carcinosarcoma is so rare, there has been limited research or clinical trials that focus on GCS. Unfortunately, this is where the cures will be found. Little or no research results in no cures or effective treatments for us. In order for us to have a fighting chance, we must aggressively support new and ongoing research so that Not One More Woman Will Die from this rotten cancer.

I am so incredibly proud to say that my mom is continuing to thrive, cancer-free. The words still seem foreign to me—‘cancer’ still pulls my heart to my throat, but then it’s the ‘free’ that really catches my breath. It makes me believe in the healing power of love, positivity, and honestly—medicine. My mom, Terry, […]

Hope Continues

It’s been a while since I posted here. I’m blessed with an oncologist who researches UCS in order to provide me with a quality of life. My treatment center in Santa Fe, NM is small but mighty. I’m now on the Keytruda/Lenvima regime. It’s slow to provide positive results, but both the medical onc and […]
