Uniting the Caring Power of People Worldwide Affected by Stomach Cancer
Dear PSA Director,
Stomach cancer is a worldwide public health crisis and a silent killer. It is one of the deadliest cancers and the third leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Yet, awareness of the disease is shockingly low. Thus far, stomach cancer has received little media attention or research funding. Periwinkle Global, a No Stomach For Cancer campaign, is our response to the ongoing and critical need to bring stomach cancer to the forefront of the cancer battle. The campaign calls for increases in collaboration and advocacy by individuals, cancer organizations, research institutions, medical professionals, companies, and philanthropists to participate in stomach cancer awareness and research funding worldwide. Our efforts to increase stomach cancer awareness through a successful 2010 Senate resolution introducing November as Stomach Cancer Awareness Month® in the US and subsequent global awareness and fundraising initiatives such as the No Stomach For Cancer Walk have certainly made a difference. We are proud of these successes, but we recognize the urgency of moving progress forward at an accelerated pace.
Our mission is to support research and unite the caring power of people worldwide affected by stomach cancer. The organization focuses on advancing awareness and education about stomach cancer, including Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer (CDH1 Gene Mutation), providing a support network for affected families, and supporting research efforts for screening, early detection, treatment, and prevention of stomach cancer. We believe that collaboration and partnership will move us toward success and actively seek relationships to advance the fight against stomach cancer.
