THE STORY:

This year's No Stomach For Cancer worldwide walk is taking place on Saturday, November 1. This charity raises money to create awareness of the disease and fund research for a cure.


The story - in February, Vanderbilt student, Lauren Mandel's mother Sally was diagnosed with stomach cancer, the second leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. In American the disease is less common because of better food safety and handling. Unfortunately, for a small percentage of stomach cancer patients, the disease is linked to a genetic component.

Sally's father, Harry died from stomach cancer in 1978 at age 54. Sally is a CDH1 gene carrier and her children and siblings are currently being tested for the gene. If they have the gene they have an extremely high risk of Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer (HDGC) and would have to undergo a prophylactic gastroectomy.

The No Stomach For Cancer team advances 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.


We will meet at (TBA - at Vanderbilt) for a short walk around the campus before the football game.

There are two ways to support:-

1) JOIN THE TEAM by registering for the walk (details below) at No Stomach for Cancer and then creating your personal fundraising page on Team Vanderbilt here at crowdrise; or

2) DONATE using the ORANGE BUTTON to the right.

REGISTRATION:  This year No Stomach for Cancer is offering two types of registration. We have worked wit NSFC to create a STUDENT option for $25 that does come with a t-shirt. Please contact Lauren at Lauren.a.Mandel@vanderbilt.edu if you are interested in registering with the student option.
