Welcome to, home of the PMP Research Foundation!

We are proud to be members of NORD (National Organization for Rare Disorders).

Our mission is to fund promising research to find a cure for Pseudomyxoma Peritonei (PMP), Appendix Cancer, and related Peritoneal Surface Malignancies (PSM), and to fund educational programs for physicians and patients about these diseases.

This site will provide answers to common questions about PMP and Appendix Cancer and tell you how you can help support our important cause.

Thank you for visiting our site, and thank you very much for your support of our mission!
