Festive Zoom Meeting

Following on from the success of the last OG Cancer NI Zoom meeting held on 3rd October, we have arranged a Festive Zoom meeting on:

Saturday 5th December 2020 at 11am.

For those unfamiliar with Zoom, don’t worry, we will send out easy to follow instructions nearer the time as well as resending out the invitation to join the meeting. You can join Zoom meetings from a lap top, tablet or a web-enabled phone. It is free and easy to use. Please make sure we have your correct, up to date email address!

Once again this will be an opportunity to see everyone, to ask questions, hear updates from OG Cancer NI and clinicians and to listen to short talks from our speakers including:

  • ‘The link with nutrition and cancer risk and survival.’ Professor Helen Coleman is one of the leading research scientists in QUB. Professor Coleman’s research mostly focusses on the epidemiology and early detection of gastrointestinal cancer. She has a particular interest in Barrett’s Oesophagus and oesophageal cancer.
  • Karyn Booth. Karyn is a freelance Food stylist, Home Economist and Cookery writer. Her work mainly involves creating food for film, television commercials, magazines and food packaging. She is passionate about making food look appetizing and delicious. Karyn is currently working on the set of The Northman starring Nicole Kidman and previously worked for 4 years on the Game Of Thrones. Karyn helped to care for a close relative following his operation for oesophagogastric cancer and understands the difficulties experienced by patients. She will demonstrate a simple Christmas dish that can be enjoyed by all.

If you have any questions that you would like to ask, or any other query please forward them to info@ogcancerni.com before the event. The invitation to the Zoom will be sent out via email nearer to the event.

We do hope that you can join us at this meeting.

Take care,

Helen

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.
