One-in-a-million people are diagnosed with EHE worldwide.

Our mission is to find treatments and a cure for this rare cancer by advancing research and driving collaboration between patients, researchers, and clinicians.

We envision a world where Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma (EHE) is easily diagnosed and treatable. Join our dedicated community.

Patient Services

Whether you are newly diagnosed or have been living with EHE for a while, you are not alone. The EHE Community is stronger together and includes patients, their families and friends and the many specialists working tirelessly to find treatments and a cure. 

EHE Biobank

Patients are the key to finding new treatments for EHE! Researchers need tumor tissue, blood and fluid from EHE patients to understand disease progression and speed development of new drugs and therapies.
