Advocate For Increased Federal Funding For Research

You can help get increased federal funding for stomach cancer research by contacting your elected officials.  We at Debbie's Dream Foundation are bringing attention to the lack of research funding for stomach cancer and to raise awareness about the disease.  Be the voice for stomach cancer patients who can't speak for themselves!

2014 Capitol Hill Advocacy Day

Debbie's Dream Foundation: Curing Stomach Cancer held the second Stomach Cancer Capitol Hill Advocay Day in February 2014.  Fifty seven advocates from sixteen states and Canada attended over seventy meetings on the hill which educated legislators about the need for stomach cancer to be a higher funding priority.

2013 Capitol Hill Advocacy Day

Debbie's Dream Foundation: Curing Stomach Cancer held the first ever Stomach Cancer Capitol Hill Advocay Day in May 2013.  Thirty advocates from sixteen states and Canada attended 61 meetings on the hill which educated legislators about stomach cancer and resulted in a letter from 39 Representatives in the US House and a letter from 5 US Senators to the National Cancer Institute urging that stomach cancer be a higher funding priority.

Advocacy - Lend Your Voice to the Fight

Most people don't know that the majority of cancer research is paid for by the federal government and that your U.S. Senators and Representatives get to decide how much is spent each year on cancer research. The decisions the federal government makes about spending levels are the biggest determinant of how much stomach cancer research is done in any given year. 
 
Now that you know these important facts, get involved by telling Congress exactly what you think about the importance of stomach cancer research. Keep reading to learn how you can accomplish this important step toward helping all stomach cancer patients.
