Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide information and support to those affected by Cancer of Unknown Primary (CUP), as well as contribute to the eradication of CUP through research and awareness.

Description

Each year in the United States, thousands of people are diagnosed with metastatic cancer whose primary cancer site is not known. Simply put, it is possible to not know what kind of cancer you are fighting. This diagnosis is often called Cancer of Unknown Primary (CUP). Treatments for cancer vary by the type of primary cancer diagnosed, so when the origin is unknown, patients may not receive the most accurate treatment. It is hard to imagine that in this day and age, there are patients fighting this disease without having that vital information.

The Stroud Foundation is a publically supported 501(c)3 organization formed to help put an end to Cancer of Unknown Primary (CUP). Our organization is the first of its kind in the United States to focus specifically on Cancer of Unknown Primary. Our mission is to provide information and support to those affected by CUP, as well as contribute to the eradication of CUP through research and awareness.
