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.
