EVERY LITTLE BIT COUNTS
Gastrectomy Connections is a voluntary run, self funded website that has evolved from the Facebook Page formally known as the Support Page for Partial and Total Gastrectomy Patients. In addition to my personal time, there are financial requirements to run and maintain this website.
If you are part of the Facebook Page or see yourself using this site in the future then I would appreciate any amount that will keep this website running for yourself and the larger community.
The initial set up costs for this site were kindly sponsored until October 2018 by a fellow Gastrectomy patient who is appreciative of all the support they have received through the Facebook Page. This member wishes to remain anonymous, but their contribution has allowed me share more valuable resources with you all. I would like to personally thank this individual for their very kind donation. A very special thanks also to No Stomach For Cancer who have also generously donated for the upkeep and running of the previous WIX website for the past two years.
If you would like to financially donate towards my time and any associated ongoing costs then I would really appreciate your help. Gastrectomy Connections is not a registered Charity, therefore any donations cannot be claimed on your tax return.
You can also support this website by purchasing anything through the SHOP.

The Story Behind the Seahorse Logo
When the original Facebook Page started in 2012, Michelle was searching for something that would represent the Stomachless Community. During her search of Stomachless creatures she came across the Seahorse. Symbolically Seahorses point to the importance of friendliness. Everyone needs a friend, and you can be one to others just by showing kindness, compassion, and generosity. She loved how this represented the intention behind what has now evolved into an amazing community.
