Rare Cancer Research

If you are reading this website and wondering how you can help, you can either donate your, services, time, or your funds.  Please read through the Donate Services link, if you prefer donating services or time. Any service, effort, or time donation is greatly appreciated.

Rare cancer research does not specifically benefit from the general cancer funds that you may currently be donating to. Our cancers require specialized research based on their rare cell types or body sites. In order to do this type of research we, the cancer patients, often need to do our own fundraising and initiate our own research projects. Or interest a medical facilility or researcher into initiating research. This is not easy when you are already battling cancer! We need your help. Donations of money may be made directly to the following research funds:

Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Research Fund - 10 Years Later
