BENEFITING: No Stomach For Cancer

Jaclyn Kirshbaum

THE STORY:

Stomach Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide! Since November is the Stomach Cancer Awareness Month, I thought it would be a great opportunity to raise awareness and money for a disease that truly needs it! I created the stomach cancer whipped cream challenege as a fun way to help spread this awareness and raise money to donate to stomach cancer research. For more information go to www.nostomachforcancer.org/support-us/events and check out the flyer posted on their website at http://www.nostomachforcancer.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Whipped-cream-challenge-flyer.pdf

A little background about myself, I am a freshman at Roger Williams University and my dad was diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer. Being told from doctors that it is all just a time game and there is nothing they can do, is never what anyone wants to hear about their loved ones. My dad is my role model, hero, and inspiration and I wanted to do something to help not only him but all the other friends and families out their having to sit back and watch their loved ones suffer. Cancer is a horrible disease and I really hope this challenge will help and give hope to all the survivors, fighters and people we have lost.

I want to thank everyone who is participating and helping raise awareness and money, you are taking a huge step with us in helping save lives and ultimately finding a cure!

In memory of my brother Steve Walsh, who died from stomach cancer at age , and my mother Mary Walsh, who died from colon cancer, both associated with the CDH1 genetic mutation. These two saved my life. Through their illness, we learned I, too, carry the mutation and I was able to have my stomach removed. It is in their memory and the many others battling this wicked disease that I work daily to raise awareness and funds. Thanks, Jaclyn, for your efforts in spreading much needed awareness! 3 years ago
