WE HAVE HOPE FOR YOU

PMP Pals is the world’s oldest global volunteer-run organization that gives hope to patients and caregivers fighting Appendix Cancer, also known as Pseudomyxoma Peritonei or PMP.

PMP Pals offers several programs to connect patients and caregivers to support each other and build the emotional resilience you need to meet the challenges of this disease.

Supporting patients and caregivers in a personal and direct way set PMP PALS apart.  We Have Hope for You.

HOPE ZOOM

HOPE ZOOM, our peer-to-peer support roundtable discussions, are FREE, live video conferences for patients and caregivers facing APPENDIX CANCER and PSEUDOMYXOMA PERITONEI (PMP). These twice-weekly meetups are facilitated by PMP Pals volunteers and easily accessible by Zoom.

Join us to listen, share, and connect through this online community. Pre-registration required. 

FIND A SURGEON

PMP Pals curates and regularly updates a global map of surgeons specializing in treating patients with PMP and Appendiceal Cancer. Many of the surgeons listed have presented for PMP Pals HOPE ZOOM and Conferences.

LEARN

Patients who learn more about their condition generally have better success in managing the disease. PMP Pals wants you to be one of those patients.

FIND TREATMENT

Treatment for Appendix Cancer and PMP varies greatly from patient to patient and may include surgery, chemotherapy, or both.  PMP Pals provides resources for patients and caregivers to make informed decisions on the plan best for them.

SUPPORT

The PMP journey is physical and emotional. PMP Pals support programs let you know, you are not alone. Pals around the globe send inspiration and hope through personalized notes and cards, Bare Bottom Bears, Pal Mentors, Facebook, and weekly the “HOPE ZOOM,” video conference series.
