Mission

The mission of No Stomach For Cancer is  to support research and unite the caring power of people worldwide affected by stomach cancer. 

We advance awareness and education about stomach cancer, including Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer (HDGC), provide a support network for affected families, and support research efforts for screening, early diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of stomach cancer.  No Stomach For Cancer, Inc. is an approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization under the Internal Revenue Code.

Notes from the nonprofit

Periwinkle Global, a No Stomach For Cancer campaign, responds to the ongoing and critical need to bring stomach cancer to the forefront of the cancer battle. The campaign calls for increases in collaboration and advocacy by individuals, cancer organizations, research institutions, medical professionals, companies, and philanthropists to participate in stomach cancer awareness and research funding worldwide. Stomach cancer is a worldwide public health crisis and a silent killer. It is one of the deadliest cancers and the third leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Yet, awareness of the disease is shockingly low. Thus far, stomach cancer has received little media attention or research funding. We believe that collaboration and partnership will move us toward success and actively seek relationships to advance the fight against stomach cancer.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Education and Awareness

Education and Collaboration are a focus of our mission.  Our goals include: Helping individuals and families recognize their risks for Stomach Cancer.  Supporting medical professionals to identify families at risk, especially for Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer Syndrome (HDGC), in time for preventive actions and sponsoring a National Stomach Cancer Awareness Month and creating educational programs for people to use in their communities all over the world to promote greater awareness and prevention.  Stimulating and expanding interest in genetic stomach cancers and promoting family health history efforts. Recognizing that HDGC may be under-identified, and therefore encouraging genetic counseling at every early opportunity and providing an online support network for those affected by stomach cancer.

Population(s) Served
People with diseases and illnesses

No Stomach For Cancer is dedicated to supporting innovative research to further the understanding of stomach cancer and improve prevention, early detection, treatment, and quality of life for stomach cancer patients.

Population(s) Served
People with diseases and illnesses
Adults

The motivation for creating this Alliance is to attract more attention and funding to this disease and to open lines of communication between key opinion leaders. It has been more than ten years since our Founder, Karen Chelcun-Schreiber, created this organization, and we are proud of what we have accomplished so far. However, there is a palatable sense of urgency within the patient community, and we must answer that call with big ideas and a louder voice. The next ten years may prove to be the most impactful if we can push harder for collaboration and increases in research funding.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Advance awareness and education about stomach cancer, including Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer (HDGC).

Establish and maintain a network of support for affected families.

Support research efforts for screening, early detection, treatment and prevention of stomach cancer.

Sustain a strong and high performing organization.

The 1-2 year plan is to further develop our functioning board to facilitate the changes needed to strengthen our organization. We are also focused on improving our face to the world. Our website serves as our global communication tool and a primary resource for information, awareness, support to patients, and connection people worldwide. Enhancements to the site, including language translation, will help us to further our reach and our connections around the globe.

Our long-term plan is to further establish NSFC as the global thought leader for the stomach (a.k.a. gastric) cancer community through continual development of educational materials, research efforts, prevention and treatment. Consistent development of our programs and services will allow us to accomplish our mission and create the top-of-mind awareness that is necessary to save lives.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Data
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
