BENEFITING: SALGI ESOPHAGEAL CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jun 16, 2018
It is my 3rd year participating in the 6th Annual Esophageal Cancer Walk/Run for the Salgi Cancer Research Foundation on behalf of my dad. This year, my mom and I are matching ALL donations received so please consider making a tax-deductible donation.
Early detection can save lives! Esophageal cancer is the fastest growing cancer in the United States, growing 600% in the past decade! I
One of the major symptoms is chronic heartburn which 15 million American experience everday and 86% are unaware of the link between esophagael cancer and chronic heartburn until it is too late. We need to further the research and funding dedicated to esophagael cancer as there are no early detection tests.
I understand everyone has a foundation near and dear to their heart and understand we cannot donate and give to everything. The main goal is for everyone to read and see a doctor if you have chronic heartburn!!!
Thank you to everyone for taking a minute to read!
The 6th 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.
