The Desmoid Tumour Foundation of Canada (DFC) is dedicated to funding research for a cure for the rare condition of Desmoid Tumours.

This devastating disease is very rare, affecting approximately 2 in 1 million every year.

Desmoid Tumours, also known as “aggressive fibromatosis,”are locally aggressive and can cause life threatening problems or even death when they invade vital organs.

The tendency for recurrence with surgery makes the treatment of these very rare tumours challenging.
