PMP Pals is a global volunteer run organization that gives hope to patients and caregivers fighting appendix cancer, also known as Pseudomyxoma Peritonei or PMP, and other cancers of the abdominal cavity.  We provide information through our web site and personalized support through our mentor program.  If you or someone you know is affected by this rare cancer, please contact us today so we can provide HOPE to YOU!
