No Stomach For Cancer, Inc.
June 15, 2011

I found this organization when my brother was diagnosed with diffuse stomach cancer. I found their website to be a wealth of information and their community very supportive and empathetic. I posted several comments on their facebook page and the Chelcum family responded to all posts. I also communicate via email with the founder, Karen Chelcum and she and No Stomach for Cancer have become wonderful supporters during this difficult time. I lost my brother in March. My family hosted a fundraising event in May and we donated most of the proceeds to this organization. I support and look forward to No Stomach for Cancer's continued growth.

No Stomach for Cancer is working with the genetists that found this gene mutation and will soon uncover more genes that may be associated with it. This information will be beneficlal to my family and others.

They are working hard on uncovering more information on a disease that is under-funded and under-researched. I wouldn't recommend changes but rather encouragement and support so they can continue their work.
