Thank you for joining our determined community of volunteers who are working to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for gastric (stomach) cancer.
Worldwide, gastric cancer is the fourth most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer deaths. In the United States, 22,000 new cases of stomach cancer are diagnosed each year and 11,000 Americans die from the disease. Despite these statistics stomach cancer in the U.S. receives less than one half of one percent (0.4%) of federal funding for cancer research.
The Gastric Cancer Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of people who are affected by gastric cancer and working with leading researchers to find a cure.
There is no time to waste for those who are affected by gastric cancer. Every contribution helps us accelerate research to defeat this disease. Please join us in the search for a cure.
Tax-deductible contributions to the Gastric Cancer Foundation are made through The V Foundation for Cancer Research and are restricted exclusively for the work of the Gastric Cancer Foundation. We have joined with The V Foundation to create a powerful alliance in the fight against cancer.
