No Stomach For Cancer (NSFC) is a worldwide leader in raising awareness, advancing stomach cancer education and supporting individuals and families affected by all forms of stomach cancer. The 501(c)(3) non-profit organization has a mission to support research and unite the caring power of people worldwide affected by stomach cancer.
In 2009, after losing two family members to stomach cancer and learning about the CDH1 genetic mutation that increases the risk of developing stomach cancer, Karen Chelcun Schreiber founded NSFC. The goal was to advance awareness and education about stomach cancer, including Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer (HDGC), provide a support network for affected families and support research efforts for early detection, screening and prevention of stomach cancer.
