Join us November 7, 2015 as we walk in memory of Eileen Dirkes!
The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2015, 10,720 people will die from stomach cancer, accounting for 1.8% of all cancer deaths. In 2015, it is estimated that that 24,590 people will be diagnosed with stomach cancer. Sadly, Eileen Dirkes was one of these statistics and was taken from us too early on June 18, 2013. Although the statistics for new cases has seen an average decline of 1.5% per year, we have not seen a significant decline in death rates. By donating to our fund, No Stomach for Cancer is able to provide continued awareness and education about stomach cancer, provide a support network for families, and support research for screening, early detection, treatment and prevention for stomach cancer.
