Review for Esophageal Cancer Action Network, Inc. (ECAN), Stevenson, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I found the Esophageal Cancer Action Network (ECAN) when my dad was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in 2009. They were an exceptional source of information and were determined to get the message out to the public that "Heartburn Can Cause Cancer". Over the years they have saved countless lives by encouraging people who have persistent heartburn to get it checked. Esophageal Cancer is rarely diagnosed early & because of this, is one of the most deadly cancers. If checked early it can be successfully treated. My only wish is that ECAN was around many years earlier, so that my dad & many others could have benefited by ECAN's monumental efforts & strides in promoting awareness, prevention, increased research funding in the area of Esophageal Cancer.
