Review for No Stomach For Cancer, Madison, WI, USA
No Stomach For Cancer saved my life - literally! After I had genetic testing that revealed I carried a rare gene that gave me an 80-90% chance of developing stomach cancer that couldn't be detected through screening, my genetic counselor referred me to NSFC and told me not to look at anything else on the internet. Through NSFC I found the surgeon who removed my stomach as a precautionary measure, but after surgery we learned that I'd had four spots of cancer that hadn't been detected prior to surgery. Having lost both my father (who was diagnosed as stage 1) and my grandfather very shortly after their diagnoses, I know that this cancer would have killed me if I hadn't pursued genetic testing and learned what I could do to avoid cancer and who specialized in working with this incredibly rare gene. The people at NSFC are all incredibly supportive and helpful, and their website is a treasure trove of useful information. Thanks to them, I'm now 15 months post surgery and have a long, healthy life to look forward to with my family!
