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. After a courageous eighteen month battle, Tucker passed away in early 2010. Because the incidence of FHC was so rare, little research had been conducted at that time. Through Tucker’s experience, we have helped change that.
His legacy lives on through the Foundation.
FCF's mission is fourfold:
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.
Michael Carter-Williams of the Philadelphia 76ers is the recipient of the Eddie Gottlieb Trophy as the 2013-14 Kia NBA Rookie of the Year. As part of its support of the Rookie of the Year Award Kia Motors America will donate an all-new 2015 Kia Sorento LX CUV to the Fibrolamellar Cancer Foundation. Mr. Carter-Williams designated FCF as the recipient of this donation. FCF congratulates Mr. Carter-Williams on winning Rookie of the Year and is honored to be the recipient of this generous gift.
