The Day That Changed My Life - Debbie Will Not Stomach This Cancer

Stomach cancer is not one of the most talked about cancers. However, according to the National Cancer Institute, there were 21,600 cases in 2013 and an estimated 10,990 deaths. Here's another incredible journey that we just had to share - Debbie Zelman was diagnosed at 40 years old and took charge of her diagnosis by participating in a trial which while she is responding well to the therapy, it is not the cure for her cancer. Being an amazing leader, Debbie founded the Debbie's Dream Foundation to bring awareness to this incurable form of cancer and she has taken her cause straight up to Capitol Hill to advocate for research funding.

While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
