As the leading global stomach cancer advocacy organization, our mission is to support research and unite the caring power of people worldwide affected by stomach cancer. The organization is also focused on advancing awareness and education about stomach cancer, including Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer (HDGC), provide a support network for affected families, and support research efforts for screening, early detection, treatment, and prevention of stomach cancer. Stomach Cancer is currently the third leading cause of cancer death’s worldwide with 1,000,000 new cased diagnosed each year. Early diagnosis and awareness is vitally important to saving lives. If you or I walked down the street and asked 10,000 people if they knew that stomach cancer is the fifth most common malignancy in the world they would look at you with dismay and shock. However monumentally important the fight against other forms of cancer are, the fight against stomach cancer is equally as important. If you were to ask me what our one biggest challenge is today against stomach cancer treatment and prevention I would say to you it is the lack of public awareness. It is my hope that together we can continue to help those with stomach cancer by walking, running, or jogging with you to increase stomach cancer awareness and funding for treatment and prevention.
