supporting Stomach Cancer Research
100% VOLUNTEER BASED; 100% MISSION DRIVEN
We are 100% volunteer based, which allows us to direct 100% of every dollar we raise directly to our mission of bringing awareness to and funding medical research for stomach cancer.
Project Periwinkle was founded by Ben Broghammer in 2015 in memory of his cousin, Michon Runyon, who passed away from stomach cancer in 2014. He felt the need to do something to help others and work toward a world where no one would be affected by this disease or cancer as a whole, so he created Project Periwinkle, a non-profit organization with the mission of funding stomach cancer research and finding a cure.
On February 24, 2018, Ben Broghammer presented our financial contribution to the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, NE. Our gift will help fund the vital gastrointestinal research program at the center and support gastric cancer research. Michon Ruynon, whom this organizion was founded in memory of, received her treatment at UNMC and we are proud to give to an organization that does so much for those who rely on it.
More about this financial contribution can be found here, along with information on all other past financial gifts made for cancer research.
We are a registered 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax-deductible, and can be made by visiting our donation page. Thank you for your support!
Every year, countless people around the world are affected by cancer. One million of the cases diagnosed are stomach cancer, and it is the fifth most common type. In 2015, we set out on a mission to fund research for stomach cancer and to work toward a cure. Join us in fighting back and making our world a better place! Thank you for your support!
On February 17th we were excited to finally announce our financial contribution to the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, NE! We are extremely proud of this milestone and the work we are helping to support! Our gift will help support the vitally important gastrointestinal research program, and contribute to the efforts of stomach cancer research. Our founder & president traveled to Omaha on February 24th to formally present our contrition. Thank you to all of our supporters and donors who made this moment possible!
