The CDCN was founded by the principle that patients should be at the center of research and the clinical care network. The key to this disease is within each patient, and by collaborating with the community we can unlock the unknowns and achieve our mission to improve survival for all patients. Please consider donating, attending an event, donating samples and data to research, or volunteering with us!
We are only as strong as our community. Join the fight, and together, we will end Castleman disease.
Patients: Donate Samples
Donating samples to help advance our life saving research is one of the most important ways you can join in the fight against your disease.
Patients: Join the Registry
We need your help. With even more patients enrolling into ACCELERATE and providing their medical data and Castleman disease story, we will have a clearer understanding of Castleman disease, physicians will be better equipped to provide the best treatment for their patients, and we will move even closer to finding a cure.

Castleman Disease Warriors:
The castleman warrior program was designed as a way to bring patients and loved ones together to unite them in their ability to raise awareness and funds for the CDCN. The warrior team is a group of people who work together to share thoughts, plans, fundraising ideas, and agendas for how we can help find our cure.
