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

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband was diagnosed with esophageal cancer 8 years ago and we had no idea what we were in for. Our daughter Megan researched and found ECAN. We were thrilled to have accurate and current information at hand. We were told esophageal cancer was a cancer that smokers and drinkers got - but my husband never smoked and only occasionally had a drink. Through ECAN we found out people who had acid reflux could develop cancer and my husband had constant acid reflux. My husband lost his battle with esophageal cancer 18 months ago, but I continue to post ECAN updates on Facebook to help spread the word.
