Are you a gastric cancer patient?
Participate in our survey of unmet needs!

To help us understand how we can better serve anyone diagnosed with these cancers we are asking patients to help us. By completing this survey, we will collect information about your experience and your needs as a cancer patient.

You can either fill in the survey online, or download a copy, fill it in on paper and return it to us. All the results will be anonymous. We will use them to explain to Policy Makers, Health Ministries and the media the issues faced by someone with one of these cancers. Your help in making a difference to the lives of other patients in the future cannot be underestimated.
