Welcome to the PMP Awareness Organization


Appendix Cancer (Appendiceal Carcinoma), PMP - Pseudomyxoma Peritonei, and other Peritoneal Surface Malignancies are very rare and are all too often misdiagnosed, mistreated and poorly managed - our aim is to change that.

We are a group of survivors and caregivers - we hope this site helps you become an informed traveller as you embark on this difficult journey.

This site was created for sharing experiences, supporting research and fundraising, and to provide a support network for patients and caregivers.


For a list of PMP/Appendiceal Cancer SPECIALISTS, please refer to our FAQ page

Appendix Cancer Clinical Trials

All involved in the creation and mantenance of this web site are volunteers that have been directly affected by PMP, appendiceal cancer or related conditions. We only ask that you "pay it forward" - help someone else if you have found help here.
