With the new website comes the launch of
a free service
that assists gastric cancer patients and families to more easily identify clinical trials that match with their particular diagnosis and condition.
Through a generous grant from Stupid Strong Charitable Foundation, this new service has been established in memory of Candace Netzer, wife of Foundation board member and Stupid Strong co-founder,
, who lost her battle with gastric cancer in November 2017. Jeff shared, "Once Candace's initial treatments failed, it was difficult for us to quickly identify and connect with clinical trials that might have given us more options. I know Candace would be thrilled that Gastric Cancer Foundation is now able to provide this much-needed service to patients and families, and to increase participation in research towards better treatment alternatives in the future."
