Today is Giving Tuesday! The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation is honored to participate in this third annual event. In 2012, a group of nonprofit professionals decided to create an annual day of giving. They positioned it around the biggest days of consuming, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday opens the giving season and with your help, we will raise funds to spread awareness, encourage early detection and support research of esophageal cancer…in hopes of a cure.™
