Launch of our “Catch It Early” Campaign.

Last night we were absolutely delighted to announce that we have been awarded £10,000 from The National Lottery Community Fund Northern Ireland

This funding has allowed us to launch our “Catch It Early” campaign for oesophageal and gastric cancer awareness. The campaign will raise awareness across NI and hopefully SAVE LIVES!

A huge thank you to all of our guests and key speakers who made last night possible.

Keep an eye / ear out across digital media and radio throughout June and support us by joining in on one of our upcoming events.

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.
