The committee and volunteers of OGCancerNI previously worked under the auspices of OPANI, however they will now take the lead role in running this new charity, having recognised the benefits in creating a separate Northern Ireland charity to maximise support locally.

OGCancerNI’s Objectives:

1) To support patients and carers affected by Oesophago-Gastric (Oesophageal and Stomach) Cancer
2) To communicate the early signs and symptoms of Oesophago-Gastric cancer to promote early intervention.
3) To work in partnership with healthcare providers in Northern Ireland to be a patients advocate and promote the best outcomes for sufferers.
4) To act as the Voice of Patients and provide insight, support and care in a professional manner.

We are currently waiting to be called forward to the Charity Commission NI to apply for charitable registration.

Early Diagnosis is Key #CatchItEarly

Oesophageal cancer like many other cancers does not discriminate between age or sex and knowing and recognising the signs and symptoms are crucial to early diagnosis.  If you suffer from any of the following symptoms for longer than 3 weeks you should consult your doctor.

  • Persistent Indigestion
  • Difficulty swallowing or food sticking
  • Heartburn acid reflux
  • Hiccupping that wont go away
  • Unexplained weight loss.
