As we wrap up 2018, I want to thank you for your support of the Gastric Cancer Foundation. Whether you are a patient, a family caregiver or a concerned community member who understands the urgency of our mission, we want you to know that your generosity and involvement powers all that we do.
2018 has been a year of continued hope and progress. Everyone who is touched by stomach cancer is looking for help, for hope, and for a community that will lift them up. Through our many partnerships and strategic grants, the Gastric Cancer Foundation is mobilizing
some of the brightest lights in the scientific community and ensuring more focus on this disease.
From what we've seen over the past year, there truly is hope, and I believe we are on a path toward a cure.
Beyond the science, this year we rolled out an important initiative to help gastric patients find the right match for new clinical drug trials, and we introduced Smart Patients, an online community for patients and caregivers to connect and share ideas. With your continued generosity, we will deliver even more support in 2019.
I wish you and your loved ones a healthy and hopeful new year!
