Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma (FHCC) is a rare form of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) that typically affects young adults and is characterized, under the microscope, by laminated fibrous layers interspersed between the tumour cells. Approximately 200 new cases are diagnosed worldwide each year.-
In 2008, when Tucker Davis (age 26) was diagnosed with Fibrolamellar Hepatocellular Carcinoma, 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.
