esophageal cancer

Type: 
Organization
Description: 

To effectively fight this disease, ECAN is establishing The Network, a community of individuals and groups who are concerned about the rapid increase in esophageal cancer cases and want to support the campaign for public awareness and the creation of more effective tools to detect and treat the disease. ECAN is dedicated to working for increased funding for medical research to battle esophageal cancer. Despite its distinction as the fastest increasing cancer diagnosis in the United States, esophageal cancer is currently among the most poorly funded cancers in terms of federal research dollars. ECAN and its network of supporters are working to change that. We look forward to the day when esophageal cancer is regularly detected at early stages and the medical establishment has all the information and tools it needs to effectively treat and cure those who are diagnosed.
Our Goals

Public Awareness – ECAN wants Americans who suffer with persistent heartburn to become aware of the possibility that their reflux can cause cancer and discuss with their physicians whether an upper endoscopy of the esophagus is appropriate. We plan to coordinate a national public awareness campaign using broadcast and print media, messaging through partnerships with corporations and organizations as well as interactive, internet-based media and tools.

Medical Community Awareness – ECAN wants primary caregivers to become aware of the dramatic increase in Esophageal Cancer among non-smoking patients and be aware of the link between heartburn and cancer when treating their patients. We plan to offer Continuing Medical Education for medical professionals involved in primary care for patients, both in person and through the internet.

Decision Maker Awareness – ECAN wants those who influence how federal research resources are spent to be more aware of the burgeoning problem Esophageal Cancer has become and the need to provide appropriate funding for research.

Look Good Feel Better (for women facing cancer)

Type: 
Organization
Description: 

This is a TOTALLY FREE one time get together where professionals in your area get together and donate their time to help you learn about how to take care of your skin and tricks for looking your best during treatments. They will talk about different kinds of wigs and/or head treatments like scarfs and turbans. Believe me, if you lose your hair, and it is in cool weather, you will freeze. You lose a lot of heat through your head. A terry cloth turban is invaluable and inexpensive. They teach you so much about things you wouldn't eve think about probably.

Even if you don't wear make up there are things you need to know about taking care of your skin during treatments.

And you come away with a lot of free name brand skin care products that are good for you during treatments and also a lot of free name brand cosmetics which are all donated by the companies. Each person gets products that will work best with their skin types and cosmetics for their skin colours etc.

It truly makes you feel better! It is offered on a regular basis in Cancer Centres all over the US and Canada. It IS FREE but you do need to register to attend however.
