In loving memory of Linda Klueber

This first annual fundraiser is in honor of Linda Klueber – Mother, daughter, sister, friend, aunt, nurse, volunteer, and hero – who passed away from esophageal cancer on September 30, 2021.

Through this first annual event, Linda’s family hopes to spread awareness of esophageal cancer, advocate for families facing this disease, and raise money to help fund research. Esophageal cancer is currently underfunded, Linda’s family hopes that more targeted treatments and immunotherapies will be developed with the help of contributions through Linda’s Trail of Love,1st Annual Esophageal Cancer 5K Run/Walk.

Linda’s journey with esophageal cancer was typical of the many others who suffer from this disease. The worrisome signs of heartburn and reflux were dismissed, and an endoscopy was only scheduled after Linda began having difficulty swallowing. In August 2019, Linda was diagnosed with stage IV esophageal adenocarcinoma. Her two-year journey was challenging, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. Even though targeted treatments for her specific condition were not available, Linda did not give up hope and tried every treatment available. Linda passed peacefully in September 2021 but is still ever-present in all our lives.

Linda was the oldest of 7 Guarino siblings, mother to Katie Ablett and Michael Klueber, and a grandmother-to-be to baby Ablett. She had over 25 nieces and nephews and hundreds of friends. Linda’s extended family includes many Guarino aunts, uncles, and cousins whom she loved dearly.

Linda was a born leader and cared deeply for everyone. She led like a friend, without being bossy, stubborn, or partial. Linda was a wise peacemaker and the best listener. She was also a silent warrior and made it through tumultuous times with a smile and her loving nature. She had a great sense of humor that could always turn situations from bad to hilarious. Linda was a dedicated volunteer with the Somerset County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), the Medical Reserve Corps (MRC), and the Canal Walk Health and Safety Awareness Team. Linda’s love, laughter, and caring nature will be her lasting legacy.

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.  Both grants were given 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.   

In addition, COVID-19 has greatly impacted or delayed screenings, diagnosis and treatments for many individuals who may now be facing advanced prognosis.  

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

Learn the Facts: 

-Esophageal cancer increased over 700% in the past four decades. 

-Esophageal cancer is one of the fastest growing cancers in the United States and western world. 

-Esophageal cancer has an overall 5 year survival rate of only 19.9%. 

-There are no routine or standard screenings. 

-Symptoms often arise late, once the cancer has spread. 

-Stage IV has a survival rate of only 4.8%. 

-Esophageal cancer research is critically underfunded. 

-In 2016, an estimated $1.6 billion was spent on esophageal cancer care in the United States. 

-2021 estimates for esophageal cancer: 19,260 diagnoses & 15,530 deaths.
