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.
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.
