There is life after being diagnosed with appendix cancer or pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP). Below are examples of Pals diagnosed with these diseases, living life to its fullest. Most have undergone CRS+HIPEC (cytoreductive surgery plus hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy). Many have undergone chemotherapy. Many are under treatment in the pictures.
We’re realistic that the treatment for this disease is very difficult, but we hope the pictures below show there can be life abundant despite PMP. Many patients are routinely misinformed that the HIPEC procedure has a higher mortality rate than other surgeries, which the statistics show is untrue. We want patients to be informed so they can choose their own treatment plan. No matter what plan you choose, we’re here to support you.
Allow us to introduce you to some of our Pals:
PMP Pals has HOPE for YOU!
