This organization is wonderful at spreading awareness and raising funding for stomach cancer. They've worked so hard to get the word out and educate the public about this disease that takes so many lives. I've watched them go by leaps and bounds and accomplish so much. They've been so supportive, especially when my sister was diagnosed with stomach cancer.
Stomach cancer didn't have much of a voice until now. No Stomach for Cancer, Inc supports stomach cancer research and public awareness.Stomach cancer is the second leading cause of all cancer deaths in the world, yet far too little is known in the medical field and general public. Lives are needlessly claimed because the medical community is failing the victims of stomach cancer. This organization is working to change all that. It has been a Godsend in caring, supporting, and advocating for those of us affected by stomach cancer. In four short months, I lost the love of my life to this dreadful disease. Like so many, he was repeatedly told by doctors that he should just take antacids, and prescribed antibiotics. He left behind a family, including five beautiful children. We miss him dearly.
My grandma passed away December 16, 2012 from stomach cancer. I wanted to do something to honor her and I've been working with No Stomach For Cancer to organize a walk here in Utah. They've been so amazing to work with and I want to help them continue to bring awareness to this horrible cancer.
I heard about NSFC from my doctor after I tested positive with the CDH1 gene Mutation. It has been a huge resource as I've gone through the process of having Total Gastrectomy. The information and stories of others are real and have given me comfort and have prepared me for this life changing journey. Thank you No Stomach For Cancer for being there!
