I was diagnosed with neuroendocrine small cell carcinoma of the cervix in 2009. This rare cancer has no treatment protocol and most oncologists have never seen it. We have partnered with MD Anderson to have a voice and a better prognosis for women diagnosed with this agressive cancer in the future.
Only 100 a women a year will be diagnosed with Small or Large Cell Carcinoma of the cervix per year in the US.
We do not have the luxury of widespread public fame, or celebrities raising funds in big-time football games. Ours is a grassroots effort, we are all we've got, and if you can help even a little bit, we'd appreciate it alot.
One of my small cell sisters recently made the best comment! She said "this cancer is bigger than any of us alone, but together WE ARE A MOVEMENT!".
All the funds donated on this site will go directly into a research fund at MD Anderson that is SPECIFICALLY for Small/Large Cell Carcinoma of the Cervix. This has NEVER been done before in the history of this cancer...help us make history by considering a donation!!!
