For those dealing with stomach cancer, the road from diagnosis to treatment and management of the disease is a challenging, burdensome journey. Stomach cancer impacts one of our most vital organs forcing patients to undergo significant lifestyle changes, and caregivers, partners, families, friends and other loved ones may share in the hardship of this life-changing disease.
The Canadian Cancer Survivor Network (CCSN) recognizes the burden a diagnosis of stomach cancer places on patients and the noticeable absence of Canadian resources available to them. In response, CCSN is proud to announce the launch of The Stomach Cancer Portal, an online portal recognizing and addressing the experience of gastric and esophageal cancers, whether in its early or more advanced stages.
