Private Facebook Group

This group is specifically for young (<50) GE cancer patients and caregivers to connect and support each other, share symptom and pain management stories and any other medical or health personal advice. Many of us seem to be diagnosed in our 20s to 40s more often these days. The symptoms and treatment plans differ from our older counterparts because of our age. Therefore, we need a space where we can share our stories with relevant information to our individual cases. It is also a place for partners or family members to support one another through the journey of potentially losing our loved one so young.

This is an online support group for Stomach Cancer Warriors, spouses, family, and friends.
Because stomach cancer is not as common in the US, this group allows us to connect with others around the world that are going through similar circumstances. We are here to support and encourage each other by sharing our experiences in a comfortable and understanding environment.
This group has been started so that we can lean on each other during those frightening, challenging, powerless, dark days, and hold up each other on our good days. We are glad you are here, your experience, strength and hope IS needed.

This is a group for anyone who had or knows anyone with a total or partial gastrectomy. It can be for any reason…..cancer, medical complications, weight loss surgery complications, etc. (This is not a support group for weight loss surgery.)
There are a few rules. Respect, compassion, information, love, support and caring. No selling or spam allowed. Just hard to live stomachless and there are few groups for people living like this. I hope this brings support and friendship to many

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.

Occasionally we will send you some helpful insights, tips, trends and ideas straight to your inbox. You may unsubscribe at anytime.
