GUI: Stop loops in another callback function

I have a GUI with some parameters and a start and cancel button. When I press the start button in the callback function of the start button, some calculations are done with loops. When I press the cancel button the calculations done in the start button callback should stop immediately. How can I solve this without using a global variable like this:

function start_callback(...)
global stop
while n<N && ~stop

function cancel_callback(...)
global stop
