Today is #RareDiseaseDay! Did you know that an estimated 25-30 million Americans are living with a rare disease?
#Desmoid tumors, specifically, affect 2-4 per e...very 1 million people. This life-changing disease can strike at any age and does not necessarily result from a genetic condition. Though patients often undergo multiple chemotherapies, radiation treatments, and surgeries, there is currently no FDA-approved treatment for desmoid tumors. The Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation is the only foundation in the U.S. solely dedicated to funding research to find a cure for desmoid tumors.. You can help The DTRF expedite our mission to find a cure with a donation at http://bit.ly/DTRFGIVE
Although desmoids are rare, research and treatments for desmoids have helped the medical research community better understand scarring, beta-catenin mutations in cancers, and treatment for other more common fibrous tissue tumors and sarcomas. As with most rare disease research, desmoid research has the potential to unlock the mysteries of more common human conditions.
Designated as the last day of February each year, Rare Disease Day is an opportunity for patients, caregivers and advocates in rare disease communities across the world to raise awareness as a unified voice, highlighting the desperate need for more research and better treatments for rare diseases.
