Stomach Cancer Awareness Month resolution introduced
U.S. Senators Joe Donnelly and Todd Young along with U.S. Representatives Susan W. Brooks and Andre Carson and the rest of the Indiana congressional delegation, introduced a Stomach Cancer Awareness Month resolution in memory of Indianapolis reporter and columnist Matthew Tully, who died on Oct. 29.
The resolution supports more education for patients and health care providers and more research into effective early diagnosis, screening, and treatment of this disease.
Tully was one of nearly 11,000 Americans who died from stomach cancer this year. More than 26,000 cases of stomach cancer were diagnosed in the United States in 2018, according to the statement.
