Hi Cindy,
Congrats for sure!! that is wonderful, havent' been so lucky here in Maryland. Hoping for a National Esophageal Cancer Awareness Month for April and some public service announcements and more TV coverage. My congressman wrote me back and mentioned health care bills but nothing of what I had asked that he try to get April here named for EC Awareness. take care and congrats again.

MD did it last year--headed up by Mindy Mordecai at ECAN.org
(Esophageal Cancer Action Network). I wonder if it was the first state that has done it? I did see that Canada has an EC month (or maybe week?)
