Charity - Pseudomyxoma Survivor
Pseudomyxoma Survivor is a small charity, run by patients and caregivers supporting those affected by the rare cancer, pseudomyxoma peritonei (or (PMP), as well as other appendix cancers.
Here's what the lovely people at the charity have to tell us about their fantastic work:
Wait, I hear you say, there’s such a thing as appendix cancer? Can’t you just take out the appendix and everything will be fine?
Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Originally, a tumour develops from a small growth on the inner lining of your appendix. At this early stage, the tumour is rarely discovered as it doesn’t cause any symptoms. Left untreated, the tumour grows and eventually bursts through the wall of the appendix into your abdominal cavity where more tumours then develop. Think of a dandelion growing and the wind spreading the seeds all across your garden.
These tumours then secrete a jelly-like substance called mucin which accumulates and causes symptoms, the abdomen swells and vital organs are compressed.
PMP is notoriously difficult to diagnose and so many patients are only referred to a specialist after the disease has spread quite widely. It’s a very slow growing disease and patients have been diagnosed many years after having an appendectomy.
We help those affected by PMP through providing both emotional and practical support, through raising awareness and through supporting research. As a small charity, run solely by volunteers, we’re completely dependent on voluntary donations so we’re very grateful that you have chosen to taken part in the Chase the Tunes race and shown your support.
