Cory inspired many people during his battle with DSRCT, and it is this inspiration that spawned the idea to create this foundation with the goal of someday having a cure for DSRCT.

DSRCT


WHAT IS DSRCT?

DSRCT is the acronym for Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor. DSRCT is classified as a soft tissue sarcoma. It is an aggressive and rare tumor that primarily occurs as masses in the abdomen. The prognosis for DSRCT is very poor with a 5 year survival rate of 15%. Treatment options for DSRCT include surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. Current therapies remain highly toxic and have not achieved complete disease control. The development of new treatments that could someday cure DSRCT is greatly needed.

 

Cory Douglas Monzingo Endowment for DSRCT Research

The Cory Douglas Monzingo Endowment for DSRCT Research was established at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in 2011 to provide a perpetual source of funding to support the research of DSRCT with a goal of someday having a cure for this rare cancer.
