About Uterine Cancer Health Equity Fund

There are many types of uterine cancer and this fund covers any cancer occurring in the uterus. There are two main groups of uterine cancer:

Endometrial cancer – cancer that begins in cells lining the uterus. When cancer forms in the lining or mucus-secreting glands of the uterus, it is referred to as endometrial cancer. The majority of cancers of the uterus are endometrial cancers. Endometrial cancers may include but are not limited to the following types and alternative names: endometrial carcinoma, endometrial adenocarcinomas, uterine carcinomas, uterine carcinosarcomas, uterine adenocarcinomas, epithelial malignant neoplasms or malignant mixed mesodermal tumors.

Uterine sarcoma – cancer that begins in muscle or other tissues in the uterus. Uterine sarcoma forms in the muscle, connective tissue or supportive tissues of the uterus.

Types of uterine sarcoma are:

Uterine leiomyosarcoma – cancer that affects smooth muscle tissue. These tumors are most common in the abdomen, but can occur anywhere in the body, including the uterus.

Endometrial stromal sarcoma – starts in the connective tissue that supports the endometrium (endometrial stroma). Additional uterine sarcomas may include but are not limited to the following types and alternative names: carcinosarcoma, endometrial stromal sarcoma, undifferentiated sarcoma, adenosarcoma, adenosarcoma with sarcomatous overgrowth, perivascular endothelial cell tumor (PEComa), mesenchymal tumors, undifferentiated endometrial sarcomas, smooth muscle tumors of uncertain malignant potential; Müllerian adenosarcomas, carcinofibromas, adenofibromas, and adenomyomas, uterine carcinosarcoma, mixed mesodermal tumor, uterine papillary serous carcinoma, and clear cell carcinoma.

Our Health Equity Funds were developed to get assistance to those people and places who need it the most. Developed using the CDC’s Social Vulnerability Index (SVI) and CDC Disease Incidence data, our Health Equity Funds serve people living in 220 counties across the United States that have been identified by the CDC as having the highest social vulnerability scores and are burdened with high rates of chronic diseases. The Health Equity Funds are designed to specifically provide support to eligible patients living in one of the 220 counties covered by the funds, which is verified using the zip code of the patient’s home address. All other eligibility requirements, and fund operation, are the same as our general funds.
