-Donate to The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation. 

Esophageal cancer research is extremely underfunded both from the government and private groups.

Fast Facts About Esophageal Cancer:

Esophageal cancer has increased over 600% and is among the fastest growing and deadliest cancer in the US.

Risk factors include:  Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, chronic heartburn, obesity, poor nutrition, tobacco use, excessive alcohol use, lack of physical exercise and Barrett’s esophagus.

As one of the deadliest cancers, esophageal cancer has an overall 5 year survival rate of only 18.4%.

There are no routine or standard screenings to detect esophageal caner in its earlier stages.

Symptoms often arise late, once the cancer is “distant” (spread to lymph nodes and other organs)

Stage IV has a survival rate of only 4.5%.

In 2017, an estimated 16,940 will be diagnosed with esophageal cancer and there will be an estimated 15,690 deaths from esophageal cancer.¹

Despite these horrifying facts, esophageal cancer research is extremely underfunded.  

The National Cancer Institute decreased its investment in research of esophageal cancer by 15% in 2012. In 2013, esophageal cancer research funding was again decreased.  The National Cancer Institute invested only $26.5 million for esophageal cancer research out of their total $4.79 billion budget, in 2013.   Then, in 2014, The National Cancer Institute increased their funding.  The NCI spent $28.4 million for esophageal cancer research out of their total budget.  
 
The American Cancer Society reports that they fund a total of 782 cancer research grants.  Unfortunately, only 8 of these are for esophageal cancer research. (As of August 1, 2016)
 
Cost of Esophageal Cancer Care: $1.6 billion dollars was estimated to be spent on esophageal cancer treatment alone during 2016 in the U.S. (Source: Cancer.gov)

Please consider a tax-deductible donation to help change the course of this devastating cancer!  

In 2015, The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation awarded its very first grant to esophageal cancer research.  With your support and generosity, we will continue to fund esophageal cancer research.

Working together, we will raise awareness,  shed light on the dangers of chronic heartburn, encourage early screening and fund innovative research projects dedicated to esophageal cancer.

Founded on November 21, 2011, in memory of our President’s father, who passed away after a courageous battle against esophageal cancer in 1998, the Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation believes education, awareness, routine screenings, improved treatment options and innovative research projects will help to lower incidence and mortality rates of esophageal cancer.  Learn more about our mission.
