My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Esophageal Cancer Action Network, Inc. (ECAN), Stevenson, MD, USA
I found ECAN when my 55 year old husband was diagnosed with stage 4 Esophageal Cancer 4 years ago. We had little to no knowledge or facts of this deadly cancer and ECAN became a credible, caring resource of up to date information, directing us to articles, research, therapies and testing that we could bring to our providers in Western New York to discuss. Jim sadly passed away in 2015 and ECAN has become even more important in my life as I feel a responsibility to share ECAN’s tireless message that heartburn can cause cancer and the immediate need for funding, research, earlier and non invasive screenings and treatment is so desperately needed - and ECAN is dedicated to this mission. Their campaign to mandate warnings on acid reflux medications will save lives. Their lobbying and influence to increase Esophageal Cancer funding will save lives. Their collaboration with oncologists and providers, sharing the story of our loved ones will save lives. The President and board of directors of ECAN represent the voice of those who lost their battle to this fast growing, under funded relentless cancer and speak for those diagnosed everyday. I donate to and support ECAN. I share their message of education and prevention to help others understand the risks of Esophageal Cancer. They make it easy through their social media campaigns. ECAN is a wonderful non profit that I will be eternally grateful for.
