Join us for our last webinar of 2022 called “Speaking Out: A Navigational Tool for Patients by Patients for Those Facing Stomach Cancer.”
Moderated by our VP Board Director of Hope for Stomach Cancer, Tom Smith, this webinar will feature several patients from different stages, backgrounds and experiences to share their journey, and help shorten the learning curve.
This particular webinar is inspired by Tae Lee, who passed away on September 8, 2022, after being diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer almost 3 years earlier. Tae said “I don’t think there are enough candid talks about dealing with doctors and navigating the system.”
A few of the patients include:
Uroosa, stage 4, currently on immunotherapy and No Evidence of Disease
Rachel, stage 4, currently stable in a clinical trial
Jason, CDH1 and stage 2, No evidence of disease
Irasema, stage 2, 2x time local stomach cancer survivor, and now breast cancer survivor with no known genetic mutations
Camilla, initially stage 1b, now stage 4, advocate for HIPEC treatment
Suzanne, stage 4 with mets to the bones, stable on first-line treatment
This webinar is intended to educate and empower better care management for patients, caregivers, and medical professionals.
