Your fundraising and donations have enabled us to donate to both the Peritoneal Tumour Service at The Christie in Manchester and to the Peritoneal Malignancy Institute at the Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital for research trials this year. We are very excited that both trials fit with our charity remit – assisting those with pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP). Thank you.

Life and its uncertainties are hard enough as a cancer patient but when your income is so low that you don’t have the money to travel to see a cancer specialist, the door of hope and a future for your life is closed to you.

They are lifesavers.
I found this website extremely useful with answering questions when I was first diagnosed with pseudomyxoma peritonei. I am almost a year post diagnosis and I could not of managed without the support, the answers, the love and hugs sent when you’re down. It’s an amazing site and the support group is full of lovely people.
