Stomach Cancer Awareness
Know your risk. Know your family history.
NSFC’s Beth Lambert talks with Jody Pugh of Doctors of the USA blog talk radio about stomach cancer risks and symptoms, and the importance of awareness of the disease.
Stomach cancers are the FOURTH most common cancer types worldwide, and the SECOND leading causes of cancer death in the world. Learn more about risks and prevention, including hereditary risks, and share what you learn with others. It could become the knowledge that saves the life of someone you know. Perhaps even your own.
Stomach Cancer Awareness Month®
No Stomach For Cancer is actively involved in raising awareness and providing information about the prevalence of and risks for stomach cancer. In 2010 we successfully championed the first ever US resolution designating November as Stomach Cancer Awareness Month! Organizations and people throughout the world have come to recognize November, a month known for the pleasure of eating, as the ideal month to raise awareness about this deadly disease. The second leading cause of cancer death worldwide, almost one million people are diagnosed each year, and approximately 800,000 will die.
