Stomach Cancer Awareness: 1 Survivor's Story

This is a long quote taken from Fox 10 News interview that broke my heart.  It's something we need to remember.


Nicole realized after her diagnosis that stomach cancer research doesn't receive nearly enough attention or funding, so she helped organize a walk on November 3rd.

She wants that blue ribbon to stand out and stand for something important.

When somebody wears a pink ribbon, there's no question it's to benefit breast cancer research, but not so much with periwinkle.  That shade of blue is actually the color of stomach cancer awareness.  The disease kills more people than almost any other cancer, so the folks behind this movement hope the periwinkle gets as much push as its pink counterparts.

"I would hope that someday, that we can donate for all cancers instead of just one.  I think that would be great.  It doesn't have to be just one cancer, I think there should be a rainbow ribbon that stands for all the cancers," said Nicole.

  2. It is a need to bring awareness about stomach cancer the way breast cancer, lung cancer, blood cancer are known to everyone. Stomach cancer also know as stomach gastric cancer is a malignant tumor arising from the lining of the stomach.
    The exact cause of stomach cancer is unknown, but a number of factors can increase the risk of the disease: Men have more risk of getting affected of stomach cancer compared to women, genetic reasons, blood type, family history of gastric cancer, life style etc.
