Desmoids Don’t Stop for COVID-19

While COVID-19 has impacted our daily lives, it does not stop desmoid tumours from growing. The mission of Desmoid Canada remains the same: raise funds for Desmoid Tumour Research. Desmoid Tumours are extremely rare, affecting 2 in 1 million. This year’s event cancellation leaves us uncertain of our ability to support vital research so if you can, please do consider a donation

THANK YOU for supporting our DESMOID PATIENTS across Canada. If you have any questions, please email us at desmoidcanada@gmail.com

Take good care everyone and stay healthy!
