CNS Julie Hanna’s retirement

As many of you will know, our clinical nurse specialist, Julie Hanna, retired at the end of the summer. Julie has been a tireless advocate for patient-centred care and will be truly missed by the committee and volunteers of OGCancerNI.

Julie touched so many of our lives. She was a founding member of our patient support group, a reassuring presence at all our conferences and a true friend to all of us. We will miss her dearly, but we hope she may peek in on us from time to time.

Enjoy your retirement, Julie. You have earned it.

What is Oesophago-Gastric Cancer?

Oesophageal cancer is cancer of the gullet and gastric cancer is cancer of the stomach. Combined, they are medically known as oesophago-gastric (OG) cancer. The oesophagus (more commonly known as the gullet or food pipe) is the long tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. In Northern Ireland in 2016, a total of 226 people were diagnosed with oesophageal (gullet) cancer. In the same year, 214 people were newly diagnosed with gastric (stomach) cancer.
