THE STORY:

My dad was diagnosed with Stage IV Esophageal Cancer last year and is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments.  I am asking for donations to raise awareness for Esophageal Cancer and to fund further research in hopes that there will be a cure.  There is no screening currently (which I think should be changed) and it often goes undedected until it is in a late stage.  Common symptoms are chest pain, difficulty swallowing, weight loss.  Risk factors are obesity, GERD, smoking, alcohol, and Barrett's Esophagus.  I am asking you to kindly donate what you can.  Any amount is appreciated.  I will be walking in my Dad's honor on June 16, 2018 in Rhode Island.  Thanks in advance for your support!


More info on the walk:

7th Annual Esophageal Cancer Walk/Run The annual event will be held on Saturday June 16, 2018, 10 AM at Warwick City Park in Warwick, Rhode Island. Sign up today! Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 day of. Bring your family, friends, co-workers and your dogs, too! Children 12 and under & dogs admitted FREE!*   About the event: The 7th Annual Esophageal Cancer Walk/Run is hosted by The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity working to raise awareness, encourage early detection and to fund research of esophageal cancer...in hopes of a cure.™ In 2015, The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation was able to award esophageal cancer research funding for the very first time! Since 2015, over 20 researchers have inquired about funding. The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation has also raised national AND international awareness since 2011. Your continued support directly impacts and sustains this mission! The path at Warwick City Park is approximately three miles and guests are encouraged to walk or run at their own pace as the event is a walk/run and not a timed race. The former address at Warwick City Park was: Asylum Road, Warwick, RI.  The new address is Steven O'Connor Blvd., Warwick, RI. Ready to make an even bigger impact? When you register for the event, you will be asked if you'd like to create your own fundraising page. This is a great way to help raise more awareness of esophageal cancer and funding for this life-saving mission.   Registration is NOT required to make a custom fundraising page. Can't make it?  Here are other ways to get involved: If you are unable to attend the 6th Annual Esophageal Cancer Walk/Run, there are many other ways in which you can make a difference and support this mission!   To learn more, visit: SALGI.org/events Learn the facts about esophageal cancer -Esophageal cancer has increased over 600% and is considered the fastest growing cancer in the US. -Risk factors include:   Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD, acid reflux, chronic heartburn), obesity, poor nutrition, tobacco use, excessive alcohol use, Barrett’s esophagus. -As one of the deadliest cancers, esophageal cancer has an overall 5 year survival rate of only 18.8%. -There are no routine or standard screenings to improve early detection of esophageal cancer. -Symptoms often arise late, once the cancer is considered advanced or “distant” (spread to lymph nodes and other organs.) -Stage IV esophageal cancer has a survival rate of only 4.6%. -Despite all of these facts, esophageal cancer research is extremely underfunded.   Make a difference! Join The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation to help make a difference against esophageal cancer. Whether you walk, run, volunteer, sponsor or donate, your involvement will directly support this life-saving mission.  Thank you!          Waiver: In consideration of my participation in the 7th Annual Esophageal Cancer Walk/Run and/or participation of another individual(s) or as a parent and/or guardian of a child or children age 12 and under, hereby for myself, my heirs and administrators assume any and all risks which might be associated with the annual Esophageal Cancer Walk/Run event by The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation.  Hereinafter the annual event, the 6th Annual Esophageal Cancer Walk/Run, will be referred to as "the event."  I waive any and all rights and claims for injuries or damages which I may have against the organizers and sponsors of the event - I hold harmless The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation, their representatives, successors and assigns for any and all injuries or damages of any kind whatsoever suffered by me or those I have registered as a result of taking part in the event and any related activities.
