Esophageal Cancer Awareness spreads across the USA!
I just received official proclamation from KY Governor Beshear-
APRIL IS ESOPHAGEAL AWARENESS MONTH IN Kentucky!
That brings the USA tally to at least 20 states. 
(AL CA CT DE GA IL KY LA MD MN MO NC NE NJ OH OR PA TN VA WI)

Here are a few stories about family members that worked with myself & ECAN.org on this in their own state (thank you all for your efforts!):

New Jersey:

Louisanna:

Oregon:

This is just a beginning to help awareness, prevention, early diagnosis, better treatment options & improved EC research funding.
