To effectively fight this disease, ECAN is bringing together a community of individuals and groups who are concerned about the rapid increase in Esophageal Cancer cases and want to support the campaign for public awareness and the creation of more effective tools to detect and treat the disease.
ECAN is dedicated to working for increased funding for medical research to battle Esophageal Cancer.
Despite its distinction as one of the fastest increasing cancer diagnoses in the United States, Esophageal Cancer is currently among the most poorly funded cancers in terms of federal research dollars. ECAN and its network of supporters are working to change that. We look forward to the day when Esophageal Cancer is regularly detected at early stages and the medical establishment has all the information and tools it needs to effectively treat and cure those who are diagnosed.
