April is Esophageal Cancer Awareness Month

April 2, 2020

For almost a decade, The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation has worked with supporters across the globe to raise awareness, encourage early detection and to fund research of esophageal cancer.

While raising awareness and research funding for esophageal cancer is something that we do ALL year, April is a special time to make a BIG impact together.  


April is ‘Esophageal Cancer Awareness Month.’

As our world is currently suffering from the coronavirus pandmeic, The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation promises to work even harder to continue to raise awareness of esophageal cancer.  To do that, we need your help!

Esophageal cancer is one of the fastest growing and deadliest cancers in the United States, United Kingdom and other western countries.  Esophageal cancer rarely shows early symptoms and there are currently no routine or standard screenings.
