In 2021, DTRF was honored with 2 prestigious awards by the National Organization of Rare Disorders (NORD) and Global Genes. We were honored to be in the company of our fellow nominees, for both awards, and we deeply appreciate this significant recognition from both organizations.
Funded in part by DTRF, the Global Consensus Paper is the first international evidence-based consensus of its kind on the treatment of desmoid tumors. It answers critical questions regarding approach to treatment recommendations, types of treatments, and pain management. Learn more »

Join the DTRF Patient Registry
DTRF encourages you to join the DTRF Patient Registry in order to facilitate research efforts. With access to your experience as a patient, researchers will be able to continue learning and making new discoveries in the field of desmoid tumors. If you have ever had a desmoid tumor, you can participate.
Because desmoid tumors are so rare, they are often misunderstood. Review commonly asked questions about classification, pregnancy, recurrence and mutation types. This is a great resource for newly-diagnosed patients.
