The Committee and Trustees of OGCancerNI wish you and your families a healthy and peaceful Christmas.

May the spirit of love which comes at Christmas time fill your homes and your lives and linger there long after the tree is down and the lights are put away.

Our grateful thanks to everyone who volunteered and donated to help us during this exceptionally busy year.

If Christmas is the spirit of giving without the thought of getting, you are Christmas personified. We couldn’t do any of this without you.

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.
