Dear Friends,

It's here - our first newsletter!  And I couldn't be more proud of the exciting new programs and initiatives we have to share.

My father's stomach cancer diagnosis came in late 2013.  And, he was given 6-months to live.  I needed resources and navigational tools to get through this devastating disease. 

But, we desperately struggled through my father's experience.  Because we couldn't find up-to-date information or sharing of stomach cancer research.  Nor could we find support that focused on this type of cancer.  

That's why I founded Hope for Stomach Cancer.  We're a 501(c)(3) patient advocacy non-profit.  And while today, my father is clinically cured.  Stomach cancer needs more.  So, I continue to advocate for this disease that touched my family so personally.

BIG Announcement:  We're launching a new webinar series.  Hope Webinars will give patients and caregivers the very latest information on treatments, early noninvasive diagnosis (prevention), nutritional support and more. 

Hope Webinars will have something for everyone.  So stay tuned - there's lots more to come!

Thank you, my friends, for your continuous support and devotion.

Story of the Month

This Story of the Month comes from Batool, a caregiver to her late husband, Mohammad, who was an oncologist and diagnosed at age 33-years-old.

"Mohammad is an amazing oncologist and researcher. He always took care of his patients and advocated for them. Being diagnosed with the cancer that he used to treat in his patients was very hard. Mohammad was able to be with us for one year after his diagnosis. He never lost hope. During his year of treatment, Mohammad was nominated as the best researcher fellow from his team. He was also able to submit and publish his research."

Thank you, Batool, for sharing this heartbreaking story and continuing to being a part of this community. Sending so much love your way <3
