Stomach Cancer Awareness Month
November, a month known for the pleasure of eating, is the ideal month to raise awareness about gastric cancer. There is a great deal of focus on food, nourishment and family at this time of year, and that can be challenging for people dealing with stomach cancer, and for those living without a stomach.
