We hope you will join us this June at our 11th Annual PMP Cancer Awareness Walk and our 6th Dad's Day 5K. This event is held annually to increase awareness and create funding for education and research to find a cure for Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP) Cancer, commonly referred to as Appendix Cancer.
The term Pseudomyxoma Peritonei has been and still is used to mean a number of different things. This has created much confusion for patients and physicians. Efforts are underway to better define PMP in the medical literature so that there is a better understanding of the term and communication between physicians and patients. Generally speaking, PMP is a rare condition characterized by the presence of mucin in the abdominal cavity. A number of types of tumors can cause PMP, but the most common cause is appendix cancer – including low grade mucinous neoplasms of the appendix.
You can impact Appendix/PMP Research and education by:
- Registering and walking or Running on Father’s Day
- Supporting someone who is walking or Running
- Becoming a captain and forming a Fundraising Team
- Becoming a Walk Sponsor, T-Shirt Sponsor, or Mile Sponsor
- Sponsoring a Mile in “Honor of” or “Memory of” someone affected by PMP.
The PMP Cancer Awareness Walk is an all-volunteer effort. All proceeds will benefit PMP/Appendix Cancer research and education through the ACPMP Research Foundation 501(c)3.
With your help, we can make a difference!!!
