The Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation (DTRF)

Desmoid tumors are exceedingly rare and have no cure. Though they don't metastasize, they are locally aggressive and infiltrate and destroy the tissue around them as they grow -- causing decreased function, loss of limb and even death. Their high recurrence rate forces many patients to undergo multiple surgeries, rounds of chemotherapy and radiation treatment, often with little success.

DTRF is the only organization in the world connecting patients and funding research related to the diagnosis and treatment of desmoid tumors. The Running for Answers 5K is DTRF's largest fundraising effort.

We are certain that our efforts to fund the most cutting-edge desmoid tumor research will result in the development of treatment options and will bring us closer to our ultimate goal -- a cure.
