No Stomach for Cancer, Inc.
June 22, 2011

Our 22 year old son Tyler was diagnosed with stomach cancer on December 30, 2009. In January 2010 we found out that his cancer was terminal. Tyler was a four year medal winning swimmer for the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. His request for one last swim with his teamates and the special graduation ceremony that the University held for him made headline news in our area. After reading about his story Karen from No Stomach For Cancer reached out to us with information and support. Tyler lost his battle on February 11, 2010 just 6 weeks after being diagnosed. The No Stomach For Cancer organization has a wonderful tribute telling Tyler's story on their website. They worked with Tyler's high school swim team in December of 2010 to hold an event that would raise awareness of stomach cancer. They are working with us to provide information that we can use at an event in July to again raise awareness of this deadly disease. No Stomach for Cancer is a great organization that provides information and a support network for anyone dealing with stomach cancer.

I would like to see more ways that people can get involved to help raise funds and awareness so that one day there can be an early diagnosis that would help make stomach cancer a more treatable cancer so that no other parent ever has to go through what we did.
