To provide support, awareness, education, information and advocacy for stomach cancer patients, cancer survivors, caregivers and family members.


In 2011, Teresa Tiano and Katy Kosyachkova were diagnosed with stomach cancer. As they began their journey, they found very few places to turn to for help, so they turned to each other.

“We were at very different points in our lives, and were brought together by a disease for which there was not much information, not much support and very little funding. We decided to change that by starting My Gut Feeling.

— Teresa & Katy, Co-Founders



My Gut Feeling is a stomach cancer support network for patients, survivors and caregivers to provide peer-to-peer support, education, awareness and advocacy as they go through their cancer journey.
