An FGFR (Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor) mutation is a change in the DNA sequence of the FGFR gene, which can lead to abnormal cell growth and is often associated with certain types of cancers. The FGFR2 mutation specifically involves changes in the FGFR2 gene, which can affect cell division and growth, making it a target for certain treatments. Those with an FGFR2 mutation are eligible for a free care kit that includes items such as special ointments, peppermint tea, lip balm,  and oral rinse to help soothe side effects associated with the treatments.

Complete this short order form, and we will mail kits to all eligible households within ten business days.
Eligible households include:
