2017 Sponsorship Opportunities

Gastric Cancer Foundation is a national nonprofit with a straightforward but challenging mission: to help cure gastric cancer. By raising public awareness and investing in promising early stage research, the Foundation helps scientists stay focused on achieving the next big breakthrough. Since its inception in 2009, the Foundation has made grants totaling over $2 million for this underfunded area of cancer research.

The Foundation established the first HIPPA-compliant Gastric Cancer Registry, an essential resource of patient data and tissue, and also supports related genomic research at Stanford University. A new initiative will further expand the registry and make information accessible to researchers across the country and around the globe. The Foundation established a research scholar award in collaboration with the American Gastroenterology Association to encourage young and brilliant scientists to stay focused on gastric cancer work and find breakthroughs. The first scholar just completed his three-year grant and the second award was announced in May 2017.

Gastric Cancer Foundation’s website serves as a centralized source of information for patients and caregivers who are coping with the disease. Most recently, a new video series was introduced in which Hans Rueffert, a gastric cancer survivor and professional chef, provides advice on nutrition and a cooking demonstration to support patients and caregivers as they go through the healing process.

Gastric Cancer Foundation programs are funded through the generosity of forward-thinking corporate sponsors, individual donations and foundation grants.
