What is NUT carcinoma?
NUT carcinoma (NC), also known as NUT midline carcinoma, is a type of rare cancer that can grow anywhere in the body. Usually, it is found in the head, neck, and lungs. Skye's NC was found in her right lung.
How common is NC?
NC is so rare that there is little data on how many people have it. People of all ages can develop NC.
That's why SkyeStrong Foundation was created to raise awareness and raise money for Dana Ferber Hospital to do more research for this disease to find its cure.
