This is the first time I'm posting on the forum but I have used it many times before, for guidance during a very difficult time. My mum was diagnosed with endometrial carcinosarcoma. Lots of research has given me a sad and negative conclusion of this rare and aggressive cancer.
Obviously the cancer diagnosis is shocking and difficult - my mum had a hysterectomy on Dec 17 and then chemo, radiotherapy and brachytherapy. Today we found out that after a bowel blockage of the small intestine and some major surgery, the intestine they removed, and she the cause of the blockage, was the cancer. What I find SO much more shocking is how little anyone actually knows about this cancer. I'm doing some fundraising this year and trying to find a charity that supports patients and helps with research but I cannot find anything!!!??? Only one charity in the US but nothing in the UK.
someone please tell me I'm wrong and that there is something out there. I would like my money to go toward this specific cancer.
Very sad and deflated.
