October 1 was Rare Cancer Day

Tuesday October 1, 2019 was Rare Cancer Day. This year was especially important because at the Fibrolamellar Cancer Foundation (FCF) we are celebrating 10 years of bringing awareness to this disease. We are proud to have contributed nearly 8 million dollars to researching cures and treatments for this horrific disease. Despite the fact that 25% of all cancer diagnoses are considered rare they are extremely underfunded. The Fibrolamellar Cancer Foundation along with @nord_rare are making great efforts to bring attention and to use this day as an opportunity to unify the voices of rare cancers in hopes for a cure. Fibrolamellar Cancer is so devastating because it is a fast acting and very aggressive liver cancer that primarily affects teens and young adults. There is currently no cure and no standard treatment for the disease but, we are looking for one! Help us get one step closer to a cure and repost with the hashtag #RareCancerDay. For more information on this disease and how you can help visit our website fibro foundation.org. 100% of your donations fund curative therapy research.
