Thank you Clare Chorale!

OGCancerNI would like to thank The Clare Chorale for choosing us as their Charity of the Year. 

Since the choir’s formation back in 2003 its members have always been keen to support local and national charities in any way they can.  Each year at the choir’s AGM the members make suggestions of possible charities to help during the next choir singing season and the final decision is then made by the committee.  During the last number of years specific fundraising events have been held to raise money for some well-established charities and others that have only been set up in recent years. We are very excited as The Clare Chorale have chosen us as their Charity of the Year!

Their Past President Leslie McAdoo had a gastrectomy a few years ago and was able to take part, aged 90, in our Oesophageal walk last year.

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.
