Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) will introduce a resolution this month (September, 2010) to establish November 2010 as Stomach Cancer Awareness Month. No Stomach For Cancer, Inc. greatly appreciates Senator Feingold’s endorsement of our initiative to achieve national awareness of stomach cancer. A link to the full text of the Resolution is available below.
Stomach Cancer Awareness Month will help educate people about stomach cancer, and highlight the need for additional research into early diagnosis and treatment for this deadly disease.
November is the ideal month for bringing new awareness about this aggressive and sometimes hereditary cancer to the United States because:
• The Surgeon General has committed to making Thanksgiving Day “National Family History Day”, emphasizing the importance of knowing one’s hereditary risks for disease.
• November, with its focus on food, nourishment and family, can be a challenging time of year for people with stomach cancer.
