"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 1981-2010
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 three-fold:
Find a cure and treatment options
Raise awareness of this disease
Connect and support the fibrolamellar community of patients and their families
FCF is an IRS approved 501 (c) (3) tax deductible public charity. 100% of net 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.
