Take Steps to Save Lives and fight one of the fastest increasing and deadliest cancer diagnoses in the western world.
- Every 36 minutes an American dies of Esophageal Cancer
- Most cases are caused by reflux disease
- Yet, many people have no idea that reflux can cause cancer!
- The good news is that survival increases dramatically with early detection
- A precursor condition called Barrett's Esophagus can be found early
- Barrett's Esophagus can be cured, preventing the development of cancer
That's why your support is so important. ECAN works to raise awareness about the link between reflux disease and cancer - so early detection is more likely - and fights for more resources to beat the disease once it's diagnosed.
