Fibro Foundation

"I know there is a cure out there and I hope we find it in my lifetime, 
but if we don't... you have to find it."
                                                              - Tucker Davis 1982-2010

In 2008, when Tucker Davis (age 26) was diagnosed with fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma (FHC), he founded the Fibrolamellar Cancer Foundation (FCF) with the hope of finding a cure for this often fatal disease. Because the incidence of FHC was so rare, little research had been conducted at that time. FCF has helped change that.

FCF's mission is fourfold:

  1. Find a cure and treatment options
  2. Raise awareness of this disease
  3. Connect and support the fibrolamellar community of patients and their families
  4. Bring attention to teen and young adult cancers

FCF is an IRS approved 501 (c) (3) tax deductible public charity. 100% of all donations go towards research. All FCF's overhead and administrative costs are paid by the Charles A. and Marna Davis Foundation and Stone Point Capital.
