WHY SUPPORT 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 really go toward finding a cure for GYN Carcinosarcoma! The reason—these organizations do not conduct research on our rare cancer. If you want to make a difference in GYN Carcinosarcoma research with your donation, the GCS Project fund is 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.
WITH YOUR SUPPORT, WE CAN DO IT!
With the generous donations to the GCS Project – over $300,000 during 2016/2017 – we have funded basic GCS specific research at the University of Mass General Hospital but we have so much further to go! We need continuing financial support to maintain this research for effective treatments and hope we can count on YOU to help the women affected by this rare cancer.
The next phase in funding will be focused on CLINICAL TRIALS for those diagnosed with carcinosarcoma. We need another $300,000-400,000 to support such clinical trials.
Please donate 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 and without the support of family and friends of the women with GCS, the money would not be meaningful.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Every outside dollar donated to the GCSProject has gone and continues to go toward GCS Carcinosarcoma research. This GCSProject website and the associated administrative expenses are solely supported by family and also the volunteer support and expertise of family and friends. Only the researchers looking for a treatments and hopefully a cure are receiving community donated 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 below, you will be taken to a different site than the GCS Project, but rest assured it is 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.
