Designed for patients and caregivers who have been diagnosed with stomach cancer and either had a total or partial gastrectomy or have surgery as an option, these monthly meetings are a unique opportunity to hear about the latest treatments, discuss new ideas, and support each other through a trying time. The support meeting is moderated by Dr. Samuel Klempner, GI Oncologist at Massachusetts General Hospital. Guest stomach cancer surgeons invited to this meeting are Dr. Travis Grotz at Mayo Clinic, Dr. Andrew Blakely at NIH, and Dr. Darryl Hiyama at UCLA.
Please note that surgeons typically have unforeseen circumstances that may prevent them from attending, and not all of these surgeons will be able to make it.
