Stomach Cancer Awareness Month


Nov 01 2023

November is Stomach Cancer Awareness Month, and our mission is to support research and unite the caring power of people worldwide affected by stomach cancer. The organization focuses on advancing awareness and education about stomach cancer, including Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer (CDH1/CTNNA1 Gene Mutation), provides a support network for affected families, and supports research efforts for screening, early detection, treatment, and prevention of stomach cancer.

Periwinkle Global, a No Stomach For Cancer campaign, responds to the ongoing and critical need to bring stomach cancer to the forefront of the cancer battle. The campaign calls for increased collaboration and advocacy by individuals, cancer organizations, research institutions, medical professionals, companies, and philanthropists to participate in worldwide stomach cancer awareness and research funding. Stomach cancer is a worldwide public health crisis and a silent killer. It is the fifth most common cancer and the third leading cause of death from cancer worldwide. Yet, awareness of the disease is shockingly low. Thus far, stomach cancer has received little media attention or research funding. Our efforts to increase stomach cancer awareness through a successful 2010 Senate resolution introducing November as Stomach Cancer Awareness Month® in the US and subsequent global awareness and fundraising initiatives such as the No Stomach For Cancer Walk have made a difference. We are proud of these successes, but we recognize the urgency of moving progress forward at an accelerated pace.

We believe collaboration and partnership will move us toward success and actively seek opportunities to develop relationships and advance the fight against stomach cancer.
