‘Play it Forward for a Cure’

The Desmoid Tumour Foundation of Canada (DFC) is a registered Canadian charity dedicated to funding research for a cure for desmoid tumours. DFC was founded in 2016, motivated by a personal connection to the disease. Thanks to the benefits of research underway through the US foundation DTRF, we have seen improvements but there is more to be done. Our goal in Canada is to raise funds for research as well as to provide a framework for a support network for those affected.
