In The News

Today, the FDA approved Merck's Keytruda for microsatellite instability-high (MSI-high) cancers, a tumor type identified by genetic testing. About 4-5% of stomach cancer patients are MSI-high and are now eligible for treatment after at least one prior therapy. This is the first time the FDA has approved a cancer treatment based on a common biomarker rather than the location in the body where the tumor originated.

US Congress Support for DDF

In a heartfelt speech on Tuesday, June 6, 2017, U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) highlighted the hard work and dedication of Debbie's Dream Foundation: Curing Stomach Cancer (DDF). Representing Florida's 27th congressional district, Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen spoke passionately from the United States House floor about the significance and impact of DDF and its President and Founder, Debbie Zelman, a 9-year stage IV stomach cancer survivor.
