April is Esophageal Cancer Awareness Month! 

Join The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation this month as we continue to raise awareness, encourage early detection and fund research of esophageal cancer…in hopes of a CURE™!

Esophageal cancer is one of the fastest and deadliest cancers in the United States, United Kingdom and other western countries.

The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation awarded two research grants, the first in 2015 and the second in 2018.   The research awarded in 2018, a breath test for esophageal cancer, is currently underway.   

We are honored to share that we just opened our Grant Program for the third time and plan to award funding in 2023.  All grants are awarded in honor of all the men and women affected by esophageal cancer. 

While these are tremendous accomplishments, esophageal cancer research is critically underfunded and medical researchers continuously inquire about funding.  We are working to fund MORE worthy research for esophageal cancer!

In addition, due to lack of awareness and no routine or standard screenings, many individuals typically face advanced prognosis with limited treatment options. 

Now more than ever, your support is critically needed to enable this charity to fulfill our mission.
