Our plan is to help and support patients, carers, families and support groups touched by oesophageal and gastric cancer or related conditions. The funds raised will support our national telephone helpline and online resources, support through medically approved information and booklets, support through a network of regular local meetings of patients, past and present, and support within the NHS in efforts to improve treatment and outcomes. And more recently, support of new initiatives aimed at saving lives by increasing awareness of symptoms leading to earlier diagnosis. The OPA have been around for 30 years and want to continue for another 30 years.
