    Debbie's Dream Stomach Cancer Symposium
    April 26, 2014 
    9am-3pm 
    Harbor Beach Marriott in Fort Lauderdale


    Attendance can be in person or via webcast.  Medical professionals, patients, families, and caregivers are afforded the opportunity to listen, ask questions, and speak to some of the leaders in the field of gastro-oncology.  We have speakers from Harvard-Dana Farber, MD Anderson, Sloan Kettering, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, UT Southwestern and Jefferson Cancer Center.  Evidence in the management of this disease is constantly changing and access to the most current treatment options and information on the availability of participation in clinical trials is paramount to every patient's ability to survive this disease.  We strongly believe that lives have been saved as a direct result of our symposia and have no doubt that we can have a significant impact again on people affected by this disease.
