Uniting the Caring Power of People Worldwide Affected by Stomach Cancer
Dear PSA Director,
The mission of No Stomach for Cancer 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/CTNNA1 Gene Mutation), provides a support network for affected families, and supports research efforts for screening, early detection, treatment, and prevention of stomach cancer.
Stomach cancer is a worldwide public health crisis and a silent killer. It is the fifth most common cancer and the third leading cause of death from cancer worldwide. Yet, awareness of the disease is shockingly low. Thus far, stomach cancer has received little media attention or research funding. 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.
We believe that collaboration and partnership will move us toward success and actively seek opportunities to develop relationships and advance the fight against stomach cancer.
