Giving a Voice to Patients With GI Cancers

Martha Raymond

Martha Raymond, founder and CEO of the Raymond Foundation, discusses how her organization helps to provide a voice for patients with gastrointestinal (GI) cancers.

After losing both her parents to colon cancer, Raymond founded the Raymond Foundation to provide outreach and support to patients with the disease.

Now, the Raymond Foundation serves patients with all kinds of GI cancers by going into the communities and talking to patients and caregivers to better understand what needs they feel are being unmet. The foundation then takes that information to universities, hospitals and medical centers, where larger programs can be established to address these needs.
