GUTSY phone support

0800 707 6907 (Freephone)  For people affected by surgery for oesophageal or stomach cancer. Dialling this number puts you in immediate contact with  a fellow patient. Feel free to phone! More info

We are a support group for people diagnosed with or recovering from oesophageal and gastric cancers. We also campaign for a better awareness for the signs and symptoms of the disease

GUTSY is run by patients to provide support and information primarily for patients undergoing surgical treatment, radiotherapy or chemotherapy for these cancers. Our aim is to share our experiences with anyone visiting this site or attending our meetings

We realise people will  visit this site for a variety of reasons. Some will just want to be reassured that they are not alone in combating their disease and who just want basic advice. Others will need to understand everything there is to know about their condition and its treatment.

Inevitably this site will tread a middle path between the two

These symptoms may be nothing to worry about but it may be worth visiting your GP

Three years ago Kevin O’Reilly was diagnosed with Cancer of the Oesophagus. Thanks to the research that had been done over the years he considers himself very lucky to be here today. With your help and support one day everyone will survive Cancer.

During August members of Wolverhampton Judo Club, who Kevin coaches and teaches, will be taking part in a "Sponsored Throw" to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Members including Kevin will see how many throws can be achieved within a minute.
