How can I support the work of TargetCancer Foundation?

What is TRACK?

TCF-001 TRACK is a fully remote clinical trial enrolling 400 patients with rare cancers or cancer of unknown primary. TRACK provides participating rare cancer patients and their physicians with personalized, actionable genomic information to potentially inform treatment, as well as recommendations for treatments (including clinical trials) from an expert panel of rare cancer clinicians and scientists. Simultaneously, TRACK generates critical genomic data to drive a better understanding of often overlooked rare cancers.

How can I participate in TRACK?

Contact us to learn more about the TRACK study. Potential participants will be asked to provide initial information, have an introductory phone call with TargetCancer Foundation study staff to discuss TRACK and confirm eligibility, and then have the option to fully consent to the study via an online remote consent process. Through this process, patients can fully consent and enroll in the TRACK study from their homes without traveling to a clinical trial site.
