Review for No Stomach For Cancer, Madison, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I discovered NSFC when my father was diagnosed with gastric cancer and then found out he carried the CDH1 gene. My father was having issues after having his stomach removed and I reached out to NSFC for some advice. Somebody got back to me within 10 minutes. She was extremely helpful and sympathetic. My father passed away a year after his diagnosis. I found out I was positive for the CDH1 gene 2 weeks after my dad died. 5 more family members are carriers of this gene. NSFC was our saving grace!!! It was so helpful to talk to others who have gone through what my family was going through. So far, 5 members in my family have had a prophylactic total gastrectomy. NSFC prepared us so well for surgery and helped us find the best surgeon. They were there for us when we had questions after our surgery. I would strongly encourage anyone going through this to reach out to NSFC. I couldn't have done it without them!!!
